Conditions : SHOW LOW LAKE: With campground, bathrooms, fish cleaning station and boat rentals, Show Low Lake is a greatplace to get away from it all while having amenities close by. Rainbow trout are stocked inspring and summer, while naturally reproducing walleye, sunfish, bass and channel catfishprovide fishing opportunities the rest of the year. Fingerling channel catfish were stocked thisyear to increase populations in the future. Use nightcrawlers or chicken livers on bottom totarget catfish. In fall, water stratification breaks up thanks to cooler days. Trout remaining afterthe last stocking are more active and disperse throughout the lake. Fishing for trout is best inthe morning and in the evening as the sun sets; use worms, PowerBait, or small lures. The AZState Record Walleye was caught here weighing in at 16 pounds! Use fish mimics throughoutthe water column, especially in the evenings and near rocky structure. 2018 spring population surveys showed nice smallmouth bass; the largest fish was over 3 pounds and found right bythe dock. Its time for Show Low Lake to produce another state record and fall after summercrowds have left is a great time to do it!

About: -

Show Low Lake, a productive fishery within the city limits of Show Low, is popular with trout anglers. For many, the drawing card for this lake is the large walleye lurking in its depths. Game and Fish surveys have shown walleye in Show Low Lake well in excess of the state record. Show Low also has sunfish, channel catfish and largemouth bass. On angler caught a 32-pound channel catfish here recently.

A good fishing strategy here is slowly trolling a shallow-running lure for trout and a deep-running lure for the walleye. Having walleye and trout on the camp grill is a gourmet delight.

A good trick for enticing difficult-to-catch walleye is putting a small piece of night crawler on the deep diving lure's treble hooks. As any Midwestern angler can tell you, walleye love worms. The more traditional walleye anglers use "worm rigs." Walleye are light sensitive, so fishing at first and last light are typically the most productive times.
