Water temperatures had been in the low-60s. John Galbearth of Bass Tackle Masters reported on Thursday, April 3 that the water had recently dropped 3 feet and pulled spawning bass off the bank. Bass were spawning from 6-12 feet of water. Shad were spawning at the southern end of the lake in the Bill Williams area, where he said the water where most of the stripers were milling around. Most stripers were bring caught early in the morning, Galbearth said. Smallmouth bass are still spawning, and another wave should come soon. Smallies spawn well into mid-April. Anglers are catching redear sunfish in the 1-pound range in the river. Redear typically spawn in May and June when water temperatures hit 78 degrees. Anglers are having banner days on the bedding smallmouth bass. Crappie and largemouth bass will follow with their egg protecting endeavors. Smallmouth beds after the rains a week ago went from being in 3 feet of water to about 8. Big redear are holding primarily over deep grass beds in 20-30 feet of water at Havasu. Many anglers are using nightcrawlers with dropshots on No. 8 gold Aberdeen hooks. A pending world record, 5.80-pound redear sunfish was caught Sunday, Feb. 16 by the chalk cliffs on a No. 8 Aberdeen hook and a nightcrawler using a dropshot rig.

Good action on smallmouth and largemouth bass. The bass are on the backside of the spawn in some areas with some fish still on beds. Overall, a pretty decent bite on rocky structure with crawdad-like plastics, mostly for the smallmouth, while the largemouth are more focused on the baitfish. The striper remain fair, with the fish following the schools of shad. The shad are mostly in the south end of the lake with the biggest concentrations consistently in the Black Meadow Landing to Standard Wash stretch of the lake. Live shad had been the best bet for stripers. The redear are starting to come up for their spawn and showing in six to 20 feet of water with little angling pressure. No catfish reports.
