RIGGS FLAT — Fishing is fair with reports of a few fish being caught in the late evenings on power bait and various spinners.  The lake was stocked last week.

CLUFF RANCH — No recent reports of success.  A new fishing pier has been installed which should provide a large increase in access for shore anglers.  For lake information call (928) 485-9430.

ROPER LAKE — No recent reports of success. For lake information call (928) 428-6760.

DANKWORTH POND — No recent reports of success. For lake information call (928) 428-6760.

FRYE MESA RESERVIOR – Fishing remains slow as the fish have gone deep to beat the heat.  Early morning and late evenings are producing a few fish though.

KEARNY LAKES — The lake remains fishless due to golden algae problems.

ARIVACA — The lake has come up and anglers should have no problem launching their boats.   The fishing remains fair.  The top water bite continues to be good in the late evening.  Jan. 1 marks a change in the motor restrictions at this lake.  Motors 10 horsepower or less will now be legal for use at Arivaca.  Anglers are encouraged to please be aware of your wake so as not to disrupt other anglers fishing from other boats and the shore.  Remember that all bass must be immediately released back to the water.

PENA BLANCA – Pena Blanca Lake will close to public access on Oct, 6.  The lake will be closed for at least the next 8 months while crews work to remove mercury contaminated sediment from the lake bottom.

PATAGONIA — Catfishing remains good with large numbers of 12-16 inch channels are being caught as well as some nice flatheads. Bass fishing is a little slow with most being caught by flipping in the cattails. Bluegill and redear are being caught in good numbers. Try a fly rod with a wet fly in almost any area near cover.

PARKER CANYON —Fishing is slow with few reports of success.  One angler did report good catches of bluegills. The lake is full. The store and marina are closed.

Where: parker canyon
When: 09/13/08
Caught: none, zero, nada
Technique: Worms, Senkos, topwater, drifting with worms
Road is washed out at Parker Canyon. Lake water is stained with lots of debris in back of coves. The amount of water going over the dam reminds me of Black River
ROSE CANYON LAKE — Both recent reports indicate that trout fishing is good using small spinners.
