Conditions : BARTLETT LAKE: Lake elevation is 1,789 feet, feet, 87 % full.

Largemouth bass fishing remains excellent. Bass are chasing shad and anglers are having success early in the morning and into the night on a variety of presentations. On Monday, July 6, a Phoenix man cast a Rat-L-Trap across shad boils and caught two bass on a feeding frenzy on the same lure.

The water level has increased 17 feet during the past week.

ary Senft, a Bass Pro at the Mesa Bass Pro Shops, fished Tuesday, June 30 from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. Largemouth bass are chasing shad and fishing is on fire. Try arriving around 4 p.m. and fishing into the night. He said everything’s working, especially crankbaits (crawdad and shad patterns) and plastic worms rigged with a dropshot, Texas rig or Carolina rig. Around 4 p.m., the bass are in 12-15 feet, and by about 9 p.m., they’ve been moving right up on the bank. As opposed to starting in the morning, fishing beginning in the later afternoon means temperatures only get cooler.

“Flathead” Ed Wilcoxson said flathead catfishing slowed at Bartlett recently with an algal bloom. From Rattlesnake Cove, SB Cove and up the river, fishing is fair, he said, for 15-18-pound flatheads.
