    ALAMO LAKE – Dec. 9 report from Mark Knapp at Alamo Lake State Park:

    Well folks, all in all not much has changed this week. Crappie fishing is still decent up around the buoy line. Anglers have been catching approximately 6-15 a day using the road runner minnow combo and trolling. Since we’re only seeing about 10 anglers out here a week, the fish are not spooked and are yours for the taking.

    We have a storm front moving in at the end of the week and I'm sure it's going to mess things up by the time I write this next week.

    A friend of mine took his grand kids out fishing today and they caught seven catfish and missed a few. They were fishing in about 7 feet of water in the upper end of the lake. Bass fishing is slow. I have not heard of anyone catching bass during the last couple of weeks. Shorefishing is also slow. The lake is dropping, but we’re holding our own at the old rental boat ramp. That's about it for this week. -- Mark

    ALAMO LAKE – Dec. 2 report from Mark Knapp at Alamo Lake State Park:

    Well folks, it's been awhile since I've had a chance to write anything. Bass fishing has slowed way down. Anglers are catching 2-3 a day throwing plastics. I have not heard of anyone catching catfish in over a week. I would suggest going to the upper end of the lake and using nightcrawlers or hot dogs. Once you get up past the buoy line, slow down. The lake level goes from 30 feet of water to 10 in a matter of feet.

    We did not get any water to speak of this year. We’re still using the old rental boat road area. It still works just fine. We even moved the dock back over there. Crappie fishing has been decent for the most part. They’re up around the buoy line.

    Roadrunner jigs with a minnow seem to be the same ol’ trick. Some anglers are catching 15-20 a day. I did talk to a guy yesterday who only caught one. So it's hit-and-miss at this point, I guess.

    One new thing coming our way at the park is cabins. Our staff poured the pads for four cabins that will be located in the ‘A’ campground. We’re hoping to have them up and running by mid-February -- at the latest.

    Watch our website for updates. I will go into more detail as I get it.

    No word on the bulkhead or major changes to the lake elevations as of today. I'm going to keep this first one short so I can get it to Nick. I'm happy to be back. -- Mark

    Water Clarity: Muddy (0-2 foot visibility)

    Report: I am the Director of the McMullen Valley Chamber of Commerce in Salome, Arizona and it has come to our attention that the State of Arizona has ear-marked Alamo Lake State Park for closure.

    This will not only adversely affect our economy tremendously, but it will also affect the various organizations that sponsor Bass Tournaments at this lake and the general public who use this facility.

    We would really appreciate any help you could supply in the way of emails to Arizona State Parks, and/or representation at the meeting, which is taking place January 15th, at the Phoenix Zoo.

    Thank you.
