Conditions : LAKE PLEASANT: (Lake elevation 1,669 feet, 64 % full).

Surface water temperature have been around 85 in the river and 87 degrees in the main lake. The lake level has dropped 3 feet during the past week.

Many reports indicate striped bass fishing is great anywhere from 40- to 70 feet of water. Many anglers had great luck fishing at night during the recent full moon. This waxing gibbous moon will become a new moon Aug. 21, when using submersible lights at night will become extremely effective.

Previously, on Aug. 5, Scooter Griffiths from The Arizona Fishing Guides said the lake had been hit or miss with stripers but the largemouth bass bite is still consistent with a dropshot or Senko-type bait in the deep trees.

Many stripers also had been cruising in around 50-60 feet of water recently. Remember that stripers and excellent eating and there are unlimited bag limits at this lake.

As summer goes along, shore anglers will have a tougher time reaching bass, which move deeper. Best bet right now for shore anglers is fishing at night by the marina, or targeting carp and catfish.

Flathead catfishing also is excellent. Fish shallow during the nighttime with bluegill or carp as bait.
