Bass Fishing on Navajo Lake New Mexico

May-June offers some of the best fishing of the spring for bigger fish (my best was a 22" smallmouth on a #4 olive cone-head bunny) but most fish are 1-3 pounds with a good mix of larger fish as well. The smaller fish fight great on a 7wt and are almost always more than willing to jump on the hook in the spring. Later in May and off and on all of June I have great top water action as well for the smallmouth, poppers and diving deerhair bugs work very well. On the best days, well lets just say a lot of fish crushed my topwater flies or plugs.

July-August in the hot summer I found fish very willing to take top water in the early morning until the water got to hot then hunting fish with sinking lines or cone head  streamers worked better.  When the bass fishing slows down about mid day I go looking for the carp!  Flipping and crankbaits all work very well as well as swimming jigs or drop-shot fishing plastic baits also did very well in the summer once things got hot. Most days I would be on the water by 6-7am that way I had a chance to fish the topwater bite early in the day.

September-October offers some top water action once things warm up but streamer fishing was again good. Fish moved back up on the banks so much of the day was spent working fallen trees and rocks along the lakes edge. Fall can also be one of the best time of the year for really big smallmouth, in 2003 we took this 23" beauty that was just under 5#.
