Woods Canyon Lake near Sun Valley, Arizona
While it's true that the trout here are not the biggest (but there are a few holdovers) it is true that there are tons of fish here. In fact many a young angler has caught his first trout here. That’s all thanks to weekly stocking from May to September. If you are shore bound try fishing with worms and Power Bait. If you have a boat try trolling Super Dupers or tiny gold Kastmasters. In the summer try fishing deep (10-20ft) but not too deep. The lake stratifies in the summer so if you fish deep to deep you won't catch anything because there is no oxygen down there. The best time to fish in the summer is after a storm. Tight Lines!
