Fishing Report

Mogollon Rim Lakes

What you need to know

At a glance

Lake levels are extremely low this year due to a lack of winter and spring snowfall, but fishing should still continue to be good. Chevelon Lake is the exception and completely filled this year, so launching a boat should be fairly easy. As water levels are low, water temps are generally higher. Check the stocking schedule and choose your spot accordingly.

What to expect

Expect temperatures in the mid-low 80s during the day and dropping into the low 50s at night. Rain is likely during this time of the year, but this week’s forecast looks dry!

We hate bugs too. Try something with long sleeves and you won’t fear the itch!
Balance leeches under an indicator has been the go-to set up for the Rim Lakes.
Keep it classic, grab your 9ft 5wt or drop down to a 6wt if it’s windy.

Stop guessing which gear to bring

We admit it, the gear doesn’t make the angler…but it definitely helps. The right equipment takes your day on the water from great, to great. Visit us in the shop, online, or by phone to gear up for your next trip (602) 354-8881

  • Grab a 9ft 5wt, but consider something lighter if it’s raining and windy. A 6wt is a good choice.
