Our Summer Fishing Forecast is out and it’ll show you what could be hot — or not — for all the major waters across the state!
Top spots this summer could be Big Lake, Show Low Lake, Woods Canyon Lake, Ashurst Lake and Frances Short Pond in the high country, and Roosevelt Lake, Lake Mead and Alamo Lake in the desert regions.
Anglers might consider fishing their favorite spots this weekend in the event of more forest closures.
Anglers this week reported great action for largemouth bass at Roosevelt Lake, and trout at Clear Creek Reservoir, Goldwater Lake, Ashurst Lake, Show Low Creek, and Big Lake.
Next week is the final stocking of catfish in the “core” Community waters for the summer.

Thank you, anglers!
Arizona fishing opportunities wouldn’t be possible without the Sport Fish Restoration Program. It was created through the Dingell-Johnson Act of 1950 (Federal Aid in Sport Fish Restoration Act) and the Wallop-Breaux amendments of 1984. Through a federal excise tax paid by manufacturers on fishing gear and motorboat fuels, it provides grant funds for fishery conservation, boating access, and aquatic education.
