    Ok Everyone. What lakes are you planning to hit this summer.

    I'm going to tey to hit the following
    Saguaro
    Bartlett
    Rosevelt
    All the ones I can on the Colorado near Yuma,
    Greer lakes
    Big lake
    Cresent
    and a few others along the way.

    My kids are tires of going to the same place on the Pontoon and my brother just moved here from Texas soI've got a lot of water to cover.

    Anyone else got any big plans the hit the water this summer?

    Do you ever fish Canyon Lake up the river from Saguaro? I loved fishing there when I lived in AZ. Massive bass in there... Flathead cats, channel cats, walleye... If you're taking the family, there are (were?) good numbers of yellow bass and big sunfish as well.

    Some guys I know fish San Carlos and do pretty well on big fish. I guess it depends on what you're after!

    All great lakes mentioned...Can someone give me the correct skinny...isn't San Carlos closed due to the draining of the lake???

    Sorry about mentioning San Carlos! I was unaware of the lake being drained. My buddy was in there maybe last summer, or was it the summer prior...? and was hitting the big bass and cats pretty good. I'm 1,300 miles away so I don't exactly keep up with conditions.
