  1. Anonymous: Fishing reports are updated semi-weekly. I make weekly phone calls and emails to staff located at the lakes in question, to anglers who are generous enough to share their fishing successes and failures, and to local law enforcement officers who are talking to anglers to get my reports. I use that information in addition to the information posted here, my own experiences and the work I do every day to make my best guess on what you could expect. Occasionally, someone takes the time to contact me and let me know what their experience was - which may or may not be how everyone else's went that day. If no big changes have been made or if nobody has made reports to me, I don't make and post a false update. As I'm sure you know, fishing can be pretty dynamic and changes quickly - sometimes within a day or even hours depending on weather patterns, time of day, etc. In general, I work to put all of the information I have about what baits and lures are best during that particular time of year, and I place a "fair, good, or excellent" rating next to each species based on the information I get from the above sources. Many times, those reports vary greatly depending on the factors I listed above... so again, I'm forced to make my "best guess" using all of that information to put a fishing report out. I could just tell you that fishing is always good... In my experience, there's always something biting, and a day on the water is always better than sitting in an office, mowing the lawn, surfing the internet or watching TV. If you've been fishing and have a report for me, you can email me (my email address is at the bottom of every fishing report)I'll be glad to share your expertise.

  5. Please stop updating the fishing reports by just changing the dates. Your reports are very much off. Your bass report for Kingman says that they are still in spawn. Anyone knows that is wrong. Most if not all of the reports are just changing the dates. I would rather not know then be mislead by poor information management. They were very reliable last season, what changed?
