Walleye stocking in Apache

AGFD stocked 1.5 million Walleye sac fry in Apache Lake on April 11
The sac fry were flown in from a hatchery in Pratt, Kansas.

Anyone involved with injecting these lakes with bass and walleye due to the fish kill has my admiration. I know the walleye do not reproduce in these desert lakes so a population of them is pretty much due to G&F and AzWalleye. Thanks to all of you. It's always a nice little bonus to nab a walleye or two when I hit Apache.


Jerry, just out of curiosity, I'm not catching the numbers of walleye at apache this year as I did a year ago. They seem smaller this year, too. Does that sound like normal for this year?

Yeah. This time last year, they were all over crank baits. Haven't caught a single one this year. Now and again I see a school of fish on the esonar that I take to be walleyes.

I think putting them in Apache is cool, but why not bolster their populations in lakes where they do reproduce....places like Lake Mary or Ashurts...just a thought...

Cause they would piss off the trout fishermen.

Never been to Apache. Wondering how the road is if I go all the way through Payson and over to Rosey then down? I hear that's the safest and fastest although longest! Any recommendations?

If you're coming from Payson that's the way to go. Launch at Burnt Corral or drive further and launch from the marina.

The road is rough either way you go, cover your boat tight. Guys tend to make Fish Creek sound worse than it really is. Personally I would just go thru AJ. It's not bad I been thru there a hundred times with 32' horse trailers.
No way I would drive up the Beeline to go there.

Just got back this morning, Fish Creeks not bad, but the dirt road to and from is a wash board nightmare, always has been. But a lot shorter than going around to Roosy. Fishing was good Saturday caught 15 on pumpkin seed power worms. Sunday caught a couple till the wind came up.
Marina was full of our south of the border buddies. Loud music and kids everywhere.
