Phoenix area bass guides

Recommended Posts

Does anyone here have any recommendations for guides in the Phoenix area? I'll be down that way from the 11th to the 17th. Primary reason will be to visit some friends and hit a few cactus league games but I'd also like to get some fishing in. I won't have access to a boat or anything so I'd need to go with a guide.

fishin, I fished with an Art Chamberlain a few years back, who guided on Roosevelt this time of year. We trolled for crappies with jigs and shad raps, had a great time and seen a 16" get caught. The water levels on those reservoirs fluctuate like crazy, so if the water is high then you might be able to catch fish from shore. Several of the guides down there would post regularly on an Arizona fishing forum, I can't remember the name of the site. good luck...I'm jealous.

i did but need a 4x4 to get back to some spots but for the most we just had a few rods to fish with and also to use as a snake whip i bet i went 12 rods whiping those things, and a small backpack with your tackel and firstaid kit, but then we just pulled off the side of the road went down the bank and walk around the coves.

just take your time and dont grab anything before you pick anything up dont know what would be down there(ouch!!)

I would also have a comb with you, wide gap type just in case of the cactus dont grab it with your other hand use the comb to take it off.

    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
