Southern Arizona - Sahuarita Lake


Recommended Posts

Greetings All,

 

I am taking a moment to share a recent experience visiting and angling at Sahuarita Lake. The city of Sahuarita is south of Tucson by a short drive on I-19. This urban lake is part of the Sahuarita park system.

The lake and park are well tended with frequent stocking by the AZ Game and Fish Community Water program. During the warm weather months catfish are stocked. In the cooler months trout are stocked. It is a wonderful city park and should be enjoyed if you are in the area.

 

I happened to be running some errands in the Tucson area so after concluding my responsibilities there was time remaining to taunt some fish before heading home. The lake perimeter has a lovely sidewalk with benches and tables available. Temperatures there can be difficult to deal with for those not prepared or familiar so keep that in mind for your visit.

 

Since my visit was short and associated to other activities I only brought basic angling gear. I was successful in finding a few fish to connect with using soft plastics. While the lake does not have many obstructions there are enough reasons to use weedless configurations rather than open hooks. Here are a couple of the bass from that angling adventure to share.

I'm holding to my opinion that any fish on line is good. These and the others that I found were great fun "on-line".

 

Be well, and Cheers!
