Most bass are in post-spawn, also some big bass can be found guarding beds. Success has been reported using crankbaits at a slow-trolled speed, a half-ounce football jig with a jigger craw and especially dropshots.
Roboworms in a morning dawn color is popular and usually effective with dropshots.

Fishing should improve with warmer weather.  A new fishing pier has been ordered for Canyon Lake Boulder Creek Recreation Area.

Lake level is 1,658 feet (97-percent full.)  Possibly the toughest lake to fish right now because of particularly cold water temperatures.

Throwing trout-imitation swimbaits for monster bass is an option. Bass fishing is poor-to-fair.

Shore fishing for channel catfish and carp can also be viable both day and night right now.

Finally, the fishing pier at the Boulders remains closed for repairs. The area is open for drivers/shoreline fishing

Throwing trout-imitation swimbaits for monster bass is an option, Bass fishing is poor-to-fair.

Or try wintertime spoon fishing. See a video of how a pair of fishing experts from Bass Pro Shops, Matt Shura and Gary Senft, went after bass during a December trip with plastics worms and Rapala Jigging Wraps (variation of a spoon).

Shore fishing for channel catfish and carp can also be viable both day and night right now.

Also, AZGFD will classify Canyon Lake as an  AIS-affected water under AIS Directors Orders #2. Read more.
