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

FRYE MESA RESERVIOR – The road has been graded recently and is in much better condition.  Anglers continue to have the best success when fishing the early hours around sunrise.

KEARNY LAKES — Conditions at this lake have taken a turn for the worse and golden algae has caused a fish kill.  The Department and the town of Kearny continue to work on the problem.

ARIVACA —  The fishing remains good.   Anglers are asked 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 remains closed.

PATAGONIA —  Fishing for warmwater species is good with fishing the best in the early mornings and late evenings.  Anglers wanting to catch flathead catfish should try live bluegills of the points and along the rock walls in Ash canyon.

PARKER CANYON — The store at Parker Canyon remains closed.  Anglers needing a license will need to purchase that prior to arriving at the lake.  The fishing remains fair with most angler success coming in the early morning just after sunrise.  Warmwater fishing is reported to be fair to good in the late evenings.

ROSE CANYON LAKE —  The road is open and the lake has been stocked.  Anglers continue to have success with flies on the surface.  For the bait anglers corn and worms remain the best option.
