Hit the Bill Williams arm of Lake Havasu searching for smallies. Seems I was a bit early, which is usually the case, but I did find some stripers and largemouth bass.
Water temps ranged from 49-54 degrees, the water was clear and up higher than I have seen there before. I saw one other fisherman in the area, so it was a great way to end ’08 and bring in ’09. The smallies must still be out but catching nice stripers and lmb was allright by me.
This area is a huge no wake zone called the Bill Williams Wildlife Refuge. It even has a ramp especially designated for no motorized watercraft. It is a kickboaters paradise so big it would take a week to fish it all. The smallies will eventually come in and I’ll be there waiting.
