  Arizona: Where They're Biting

TIP OF THE WEEK: It's a long haul but doubly rewarding. The absolute best fishing in the state is in the north at Lake Powell for stripers, smallmouth and largemouth bass, and ice cold Lees Ferry for wild rainbow trout with a cicada-induced bite. The temperature is in the 70s in the morning and into the 100s later in the day, but you will need a jacket when your are standing in the 55-degree water in the morning. In the afternoon, the bends and curves of Marble Canyon give good shade.

TUCSON URBAN LAKES: Kennedy, Silverbell, Sahuarita and Lakeside lakes stocked with channel catfish. No further stockings until September. Try worms, hot dogs, chicken liver or prepared catfish bait. There are also lots of hybrid sunfish.

SOUTHERN WATERS: Riggs Flat and Rose Canyon Lake stocked with trout; fishing is good and it is nice and cool. Arivaca Lake good to excellent for bass. Parker Canyon Lake good overall.

CENTRAL WATERS: The night-fishing hot spot is Alamo Lake for crappie and channel catfish; try live minnows and small jigs for crappie near the dam and stinkbaits on the flats for catfish. Another good night spot is the Salt River arm of Roosevelt Lake, actually downriver. Prime flathead catfish of 20 to 40 pounds will put your equipment to the test. All desert lakes are good for channel catfish.
