General Discussion / WOW!! the runoff has hit Alamo lake
« on: February 15, 2019, 09:47 AM »
Stream and river flows above Alamo lake were impressive this morning the water has made it to the lake it has come up 2' in the last two hours at a foot an hour rise will be interesting for the crappie tournament tomorrow :dontknow: just hope it does not come up as much as in 2003 where the parking lots and ramps were under water :crybaby2:

General Discussion / Horse shoe lake coming up fast!!
« on: February 05, 2019, 05:57 AM »
WOW this last storm which was weak here in the valley really dumped some rain up north and not snow so it melted off a bunch, Verde river is flowing big time up in Camp Verde and now into horseshoe lake with this bigger snow event tonight up there. I am guessing that SRP will start dumping horseshoe soon into Bartlett which will bring the lake up and make it muddy for a while but would be nice to have two ramps back and hoping things settle down by next month :dontknow:

Buddy that bass fishes says there is a large 90-100+ potential boat bass tourney at Bartlett this Saturday 2/2. With just the one launch ramp got to believe it will be quite busy at the ramp and parking lot :dontknow:

They were getting some heavy rain up near Bagdad and those areas yesterday. Alamo water website shows the lake has come up 1' since yesterday and flows in the Big Sandy and Santa Maria are impressive, right now the Big Sandy is flowing at 10,000CFS :o the water has a long ways to go to reach Alamo but hopefully the ground is saturated and the water makes it to the lake. Then we have to wait and see what the CORE does hoping they don't release the water the lake gains since they have not done anything lately on the project with the dam >:(

General Discussion / Cholla ramp at Roosevelt is closed
« on: December 27, 2018, 04:28 PM »
No warning till you pull into the self pay booth, covered with black plastic and you drive another 20yds and gate is closed and locked.

Just a reminder or if you are new to AZ and plan to fish Roosevelt lake this winter. Starting Nov. 15th and running through Feb. 15th. there is a closure (no entry areas posted at Roosevelt lake). Horse pasture is closed to camping and entry from both land and water, also Goose flats on the far side of the lake is closed. G and F puts out "no entry" buoys along those closed areas. You do not want to be caught fishing or hunting inside the closures as it is a criminal citation and quite expensive. Below is the link to the map of the closure area.

G and F crews moved the dock at the main ramp at Bartlett over from the left to the right side of the ramp. The main cable had broken on the original spot and you had to launch tie up then walk over the rock pile to get back to your tow vehicle. It made it hard for people who needed to launch their boat with a rope and pull it to the dock to get the boat off and to the dock. The new placement basically took up 1/2 of launching lane but there is good water on both sides of the dock now and they are going to remove that one black and white buoy out from the dock that is serving no purpose. Private vendor also came in and re-sealed the parking lot and as soon as the rain is gone they will finish striping it.

Alamo / AZGFD going to court against Corp of engineers draw down plan
« on: February 26, 2018, 06:06 PM »
Just came back from the meeting, some good presentations by sportsmen and which included the asst attorney general for AZ, by a unanimous vote the AZGFD commission voted to go to court to attempt to get an injunction against the Army corp of engineers plan to draw down Alamo lake :dance: :headbang:

Was asked if there is anyone that still guides for crappie at Roosevelt lake? I know Art C. has retired but wondering if there is anyone else?


If you are venturing out to fish Rosy or Bartlett or other forest service lakes you might ck and make sure they are open. The useless congress did not pass a stop gap bill to keep the government going so they are in shut down. Last time this happened a few years back Bartlett, Rosy, Saguaro and other lakes had their gates closed and locked and in the case of saguaro they had federal cops there guarding the gates to keep invading fishermen out >:(
