Where to Fish in Arizona for stripedbass

Central Arizona

Lake Pleasant
Just 30 minutes from Phoenix, this desert gem is a Bass and Striper fishing hot spot. Loaded with Largemouth Bass, White Bass, and StripedBass, the constant water fluctuations keep fish schooled up and easy to find most of the year. This lake is a good bet for numbers and a lot of action, especially top-water action for both the casters and the fly-fishermen. This is also a good lake to learn new techniques, as they change as quickly as the water levels.  This is one of the most exciting places to fish in the Southwest when the Stripers start boiling bait in the spring and fall.

white bass

Description Non-native. Introduced in 1960. Body silver-white, 4 to 7 dark horizontal lines; Lines below lateral line often faint and broken. Dorsal fins are distinctly separate, unlike the yellow bass, which are joined at the base. 2nd anal spine distinctly shorter than the 3rd. Lower jaw protrudes beyond upper jaw; Generally a single patch of teeth at base of tongue. Length: 8 to19 inches. Weight: 5 ounces to 4 pounds. Location and Habitat Found only in Imperial Reservoir on the Colorado River and Lake Pleasant. Prefer clear, open waters. Spawn in large groups, in April or May, generally over rocky or rip-rap type areas. Food Main diet is threadfin shad. Hungry white bass will often pursue schools of shad, causing the shad to jump and "boil" the surface of the water in their frantic efforts to escape. Angling Effective lures are spinners, spoons, jigs and shad type crank baits. During a feeding frenzy, they will strike practically any shad imitating lure tossed into their midst.
