If fishing is your thing, here is what Margie Anderson, outdoors expert, had to say about the fishing at Bartlett Lake in her article “Top To Bottom, Tips For Topwater Angling” in Arizona Boating & Watersports.

“It’s hard to beat the excitement you feel catching big bass on topwater. Topwater lures are almost always considered big-fish baits, and if you choose the right lure and work it right, you can draw the big ones out from deep water and even get suspended fish to eat.” You may see Margie’s complete article at http://www.azbw.com/past_issues/june08/Margie_Anderson.php.

Outdoor enthusiasts frequent Bartlett Lake for a variety of recreational opportunities, including shoreline camping in Arizona's natural desert terrain. While in this part of the Tonto National Forest, visitors may see mule deer, bald eagles, javelina, coyotes, and many indigenous desert plants, including the majestic saguaro, mesquite trees and blooming ocotillo.
