Alamo lake, known as one of the best crappie and bass fisheries in Arizona, is another great fishing spot. This location is home to tilapia, bluegill, largemouth bass, crappie, channel catfish and redear sun fish. If you’re planning a fishing trip from February through July, Alamo lake is the place to go. With red hot fishing, you’re sure to have a great time. Just make sure that everyone in your fishing party over age 10 has an Arizona fishing license.
Alamo Lake is a 3,500-acre lake that was created as a result of a dam on the Bill Williams River. Fishing options depend on the season and water level. Spring and summer are the best times to catch bass. You can fish from shore or launch your boat into deeper waters to find fish that are less used to seeing bait. In the spring and summer, use buzz baits, spinnerbaits, and crankbaits in shallow spawning areas using catch and release techniques.
Alamo Lake has schools of crappie that can be caught with bait, light lines, and a lightweight spinning tackle. Many younger anglers learn to fish catching crappie.
For a challenging yet delicious fish, try your luck catching tilapia. Use a size #10 or #12 hook with worms or dough balls. A bow, spear, or spear gun are allowed in spots 200 yards or more away from swim areas or boat docks.
After a long and plentiful day of fishing, grill your catch at one of the many cabins or campsites surrounding the lake.
