Fly fishing for bass and stripers on Lake Pleasant is one of our favorite offerings, and an absolute must for any angler looking for excitement and a challenge unlike any other experience in Arizona. Lake Pleasant's unique clear waters create tremendous fly fishing opportunities for largemouth bass, white bass and striped bass year round. Fish in these fertile waters feed on bait during every season, creating an unusual opportunity for fly anglers to aggressively fish baitfish pattern flies almost daily on one of Arizona's most beautiful waterways.

Lake Pleasant boasts a tremendous population of largemouth bass and white bass, as well as the largest population of stripers in central Arizona. These fish are often found “blitzing” or “boiling” their bait on the surface, which creates some of the most exciting fishing opportunities found anywhere! Catching all three species in one day is considered the “Pleasant Grand Slam”.

Along with the exciting fly fishing that awaits you, you will also discover a world of lush vegetation and a tremendous wildlife population that thrives in and around the water environment. Aside from being expert fly fishermen, our guides are experts on the flora and fauna of the desert, as well as the native history of the area, and are excited to share their knowledge with you.

Our bass and striper on the fly adventure is a perfect trip for intermediate to advanced anglers, but also makes a great beginners trip as many anglers find learning to cast from a boat easier than in a stream. This is also a great trip to fish one fly angler and one conventional angler together. There's not many places where the two techniques can work together, but out here it's the perfect pairing.

Your all-inclusive adventure will be outfitted with a fully tournament rigged 21 foot Ranger bass boat with large front and rear casting decks, gas and guide, beverages, fly rods and reels, line, leaders, tippet, and flies.
