The water temperature is anywhere from 77-79 degrees depending where you are on the lake.  The striper are slowly starting to move out to deeper water. Most anglers are catching the fish between 60-85 feet with some anglers catching them at 100 feet.

This is normal going into the hot summer months. The fish want the colder water but most importantly the oxygen in the deeper water.  Guys are now starting to fish the southern end of the lake.

The dropshot rig with frozen anchovies is still the most common and consistent way to catch these fish. If you’re able to net some threadfin shad, that will always do very well for the striper bite.  Now that the water is warming up, anglers are seeing more top water and boil action. This seems to be most consistent at sunrise and sunset in the coves around the lake right now with boils lasting 5-10 minutes.

Casting Ricos, Jr Spooks, Kastmasters, or paddle tail swim baits have been very successful.  The fishing will only get better going into the summer and night fishing has been very good.  The following picture is from Jack Anderson who went a couple nights ago and did very well night fishing with friends and family.

Have fun on the water everybody!

Pro Guide, Mike Strole, "The Fish Whisper" of AZ Great Adventure Reporting on  the Lake Pleasant bite this week. Lake Pleasant Striper bite is rated good to excellent. My clients are and have been catching both numbers and Big Stripers for the last two weeks. They are utilizing modified drop shot rig with cut anchovies. The baits are fluttered, and pulsed by varying the weight of from 1/8 ounce to as heavy as 3/8 ounce in depths ranging from 40 feet to 120 feet utilizing 6lb to 10 lb fluoroocarbon leader. The BIG Largemouth are being caught by my clients utilizing various colors of senkos fished in a variety of methods, techniques, and speeds on 6lb Fluorocarbon leader. They also, are being caught on a modified drop shot rigs fished with light weights on 6lb fluorocarbon leader using different techniques and rigs designed to fish at specific depths from 4 to 15 feet and 20 to 30 feet.
