Conditions : BARTLETT LAKE: Lake elevation is 1,748 feet, feet, 41 % full.

The Yellow Cliffs boat ramp is closed due to low water level; the Jojoba ramp remains open.

Fishing in general remains good. The lake level continues to drop steadily. Fishing was reported a bit slower by some anglers on Wednesday due to a cold from on Tuesday either giving bass “lock jaw” or moving the shad to different areas.

Gary Senft, Bass Pro at the Mesa Bass Pro Shops, has fished the lake a few times during the past two weeks and said fishing is good using crankbaits in shad and crawdad patterns early in the morning. Top-water bite has been minimal. Texas-rigged baby brush hogs have been effective on steep, rock banks in around 20 feet of water. The main lake has been productive for bass, he said, while the upper end, which is dirty due in part to low water levels, has not been as productive.

Flathead catfishing should be good as they’re roaming shallow waters and fattening up for the winter.
