Conditions : BARTLETT LAKE: Lake elevation is 1,791 feet, feet, 92 % full.

Water temperature has been 69-70 degrees. Majority of bass are in post-spawn.

Bass fishing is good to excellent. The top-water bite has improved and will only get better with predicted steady, hot temperatures. Gary Senft of the Mesa Bass ProShops reported that the morning bite for largemouth bass has been active with small crankbaits in 8-10 feet of water, as well as with top-water lures. Senft also recommends wacky-rigged Senkos in 2-6 feet.

When the sun comes up switch to 10-12 feet and throw your favorite go-to plastic rig and bait — Carolina, Texas or dropshot. “This is a good time to practice your favorite way to fish,” Senft said.

Senft said the trick is to keep moving and cover a lot of water, fishing shoreline points, islands and REEF buoys.

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

Note: Bartlett Lake Marina is now open. See www.bartlettlake.com or contact 480-221-0503 for more information.
