Lake Pleasant Fishing

Lake Pleasant is one of the most popular destinations for lake goers around the Phoenix Scottsdale area. It is just a short 35 mile drive from downtown Phoenix and it has some of the clearest waters any Arizona lake has to offer. With 116 miles of shore lines and 23,000 acres of water, Lake Pleasant is a top choice for fishing trips and pleasure boaters.


For Arizona fishermen, Lake Pleasant fishing can be difficult to learn if you are new to the area. With an average depth of 70ft and the deepest part at 260ft, learning to finesse these fish in clear water is crucial. With FishIn48, our experienced Lake Pleasant fishing guides will help put you on the fish and stay on them. Whether we are fishing for Largemouth Bass, Crappie, Striped Bass, White Bass, Bluegill, or Catfish, Lake Pleasant has a variety of species to keep fishermen busy for their entire trip.

At Lake Pleasant, there are multiple ramps you can launch from, but our experienced Lake Pleasant fishing guides will always meet you at The Pleasant Harbor Marina, there you have the option of launching from North or South ramp. An added bonus to launching over at Pleasant Harbor Marina is that Dillons BBQ is right there on the water for some amazing food and drinks and the biggest floating waterslide in the world – H2-Whoa. So you can have a killer day of Lake Pleasant fishing, get a great meal, and make lasting memories with your loved ones, all in one spot!
