LAKE PLEASANT: (Lake elevation 1,694 feet, 90 % full).
The new moon is now waxing, but will still be excellent for striper fishing. Try live shad and fishing 11 a.m. to sunset in the northern coves
The Arizona Fishing Guides reported, "Lake Pleasant is fishing a little tougher than normal this time of year. The stripers are there along with the largemouth but seem to be in that transition period of coming out of the deep water and moving into the shallower water. These fish can be caught on long points and channel breaks."
Catfishing can be decent using dead shad fished on the bottom with hot dogs, chicken liver, or anchovies. Some anglers will chum a cove overnight with corn and return to fish the same cove with corn this can be an effective tactic for catching carp and catfish.
