Fishing is hit or miss, especially with the unpredictable nature of the monsoonal weather patterns. The Willow Beach Hatchery plants rainbow trout every Friday. That means anglers can find stripers close by. Swimbaits in trout and shad patterns, along with poppers ion their varieties, are go-to lures for topwater action. Largemouth and smallmouth bass are hiding in coves around Cottonwood Basin. Anglers are catching catfish with anchovies or stink baits from Cottonwood Cove to Telephone Cove.
