LAKE PLEASANT - Lake level is at 1,666 feet, 62 percent full, with approximately 7,494 surface acres. Good fishing in the shallows, use topwater lures, crankbait or spinners.

ROOSEVELT LAKE - Lake elevation is 2,094 feet 42 percent full). Try fishing in the shallows (1 to 4 feet) with surface lures in the backs of coves and over rock piles. Drop shot works pretty well on the outside points, flats and backs of coves in 30 to 10 feet of water but altering the drop shot technique to a Texas nose hook and whacky style setup is productive especially when the typical setup does not hit the mark. The technique of how you reel the drop shot in is real important. Slow and steady or slow with little jerks or jerk and let it fall over and over again are some styles to play around with. Rock piles are typically productive using plastics bouncing along the substrate.

SAGUARO LAKE Lake elevation is 1,525 feet (94 percent full). Scheduled to be stocked with trout next week (the week of Jan. 6).
