Arizona Fishing Guides Report: Fall Fishing is Here! submitted (9/30/2014 9:27 pm)
The Fall Fishing season is here and the fish know it is time to start feeding up.

Now is the perfect time to get your trip booked and get out and enjoy the great Arizona lakes and quality fishing with The Arizona Fishing Guides!

Saguaro: The early morning top water bite is picking up. Once surface activity slows use your graphs to find the balls of bait fish. Once you see them cast your baits around the bait fish and hold on as where you see the bait fish you will find some quality suspended Bass.

Canyon: The fish clearly are in full fall feeding mode! They are chasing the bait fish throughout the entire day and that means....small swimbaits and your favorite top water bait all day long.

Bartlett: Fishing is good with lots of fish chasing bait fish. Match the hatch and throw shad colored worms on a drop shot or throw nickel /chrome spoons around the points.

Pleasant: The striper and largemouth bite is going well. Spoons and swimbaits are working for both stripers and largemouth. Quality Pleasant largemouth are being caught on a buzz bait. Donít be afraid to throw it all day long. If you haven't seen, our guide Jason caught a giant 28lb striper out at Pleasant. Want to shoot for a giant striper? Give us a call and book a Pleasant trip.

Roosevelt: It is great to see this lake in full fall swing. Fish are up in the shallows and suspended over deep water. Top water and other reaction baits are getting the job done.

Apache: Early in the morning those aggressive smallmouth bass are out chasing bait with a lot of largemouth. Target the points early and the steep banks as the day goes on.

With the great Fall Fishing here we are making Ultimate Fishing Adventure Gift Certificates available again. Be sure to contact us from the site or give us a call to learn how to order one.

we are nearing the end of summer and the fishing is getting better and better.

Saguaro Lake remains to be one of my favorite lakes in the state. You can catch them on some top water baits and also when the sun comes up slow down and use a drop shot or a light Carolina rig.

Bartlett lake is still fun and producing some good numbers of fish the water has stabilized form all the water they were putting in it and the fish seem to be settling in and starting to eat a little more. Use some crank baits and top water here in the early mornings and early evenings. The middle of the day slow down and use jigs and a drop shot for the slower bites..

Roosevelt lake is starting to show some sign of life again and is soon to one of the best fisheries again in the state.

Apache lake is really doing well this time of year the early mornings and evenings are the best with good numbers and good size fish.. Reaction early then slow down with the plastics on the end of flats. Look for fish chasing bait and cast into them immediately for the best luck..

Lake pleasant is really producing the numbers of stripers during the night under lights with live bait or anchovies if that is the way you like to fish have fun.. If the reaction bite is more your style start early and look for the fish chasing the shad around bring some binoculars and keep your eyes open..

We have started a instagram account and are loading pictures from our trips daily on the site. Be sure to take advantage of our Aug special time is running out.

Summer is just around the corner and the weather is heating up.

Saguaro lake is still slowly producing big fish. Most of the spawn is done but you can still find some guarding the beds like their life depends on it. Senkos are working for fish that are guarding fry also some fish are out chasing bai tin the morning topwater and swim baits are the ticket for these fish.. What a great spawn we had at this lake and I am already gearing up for next year.

Bartlett Lake is very low right now but is starting to fill up quickly I have heard that the main ramp will be back in the water soon. Fishing here is pretty good and fish can be caught on a drop shot or dragging a jig on long points. The reaction bite can be good on some mornings but seems to go away pretty quick..

Roosevelt still has fish on beds and when the wind is not blowing get up in the shallow water and look around for the beds.

Apache lake was and still is fishing pretty good the smallmouth had a great spawn and would eat just about anything you threw at them while in the bed. Now its time to start looking for them to eat some reaction baits like top water and maybe some Jerk baits.

Lake Pleasant is super clear and one of the best places to sight fish for the beginners. The river has opened early due to the eagles not doing their thing and all of the fish up there haven't seen a bait in months. senkos and a drop shot around the tress is about the best thing going for the l largemouth. The stripers are still a little deep and can be caught on anchovies and live shad..

We have been adding lots of pictures to our photo gallery along with lots of videos to the site as well.
Keep a eye out for our Mother's and Father's day specials..
