Conditions : LAKE MARY: LOWER LAKE MARY- Even with the high winds, fishing was good to excellent over the weekend on worms under a bobber and pistol petes. Folks fly fishing were catching a lot of fish on bead-headed prince nymph flies and regular prince nymphs. Small silver lures were also working. On Thursday afternoon, 10 anglers were reeling in fish and three of the others caught fish while Flagstaff region Fisheries Specialist Chuck Benedict was talking to them. Up to six were catching fish at the same time. Folks were catching them on worms under a bobber, PowerBait (pink, green, corn, Flies, small silver lures, and Pistol Petes below a bobber.) There were folks catching their limits in an hour and other folks catching and releasing 30-40 fish in a couple of hours. Stocked last week. Scheduled to be stocked this week.

UPPER LAKE MARY — Campground is closed. Fishing was slow over the weekend. We conducted one-half of our netting survey last week. The majority of the fish caught were walleye. Most of the walleye caught were in spawning condition.

About: - Upper Lake Mary near Flagstaff is a high country lake with lots of fishing variety. It has walleye, northern pike, crappie, yellow perch and channel catfish. For walleye, try trolling silver and black colored Rapalas, especially in the evening.

Many anglers like to fish for perch and crappie simultaneously in summer. A good bait for such combination fishing is mealworms. Also try a green and white mini jig about 2 or 3 feet under a bobber.

In the spring, some anglers were catching channel catfish up to 6 and 7 pounds. Summer nights are just made for catfishing along Lake Mary's shoreline and sometimes watching shooting stars reflected on the water. If you have a two-pole stamp, set up one rod with scented bait for catfish and the other with a night crawler to attract any marauding walleye, perch, crappie or largemouth. Using water dogs is a good bet because you might even land a large pike or bass.

There are no boat motor size restrictions here. It is nice to camp in the pines, have Flagstaff amenities close by, and fish for warm-water species. There are also plenty of trout fishing places nearby, including Lower Lake Mary.
