    Arivaca 1/5/20

    Drove down to Arivaca today not expecting too much in the way of a bite and was correct. On the water at 10am and off at about 1:30pm. the lake is full and spilling slightly. water is stained with visibility to about 18". water was hovering around 50-52 degrees. we threw dropshot, carolina rigs, texas rigs, and jigs all to no avail. i was graphing fish in 18 to 22 feet of water, they were hanging tight to the bottom and apparently not very hungry. beautiful day with a light breeze and temps in the lower to mid 70's. Six other boats and a couple of yaks. nobody that we talked to was able to coax a bite today.

    Thanks. We are hitting Pena tomorrow. Expecting same thing and targeting 15-25’ fish. Slow as it goes.

    So National Forest is setting up a fee station at Pena. It wasn’t quite set up yet today but looks like it will be in place real soon. Cost $8 a day or $10 for a week. Water temps 46-48 really stained water. Obviously slow bite. 5 bites 3 in boat. Other 2 off on way in. All on DS. 31 degrees at ramp at 8:30am. Pretty nice day but fairly windy. No one else on lake

    that figures...hope they leave vaca alone. the last decent fishin' hole that don't cost an arm and a leg to use (not that $8 is that much, but still...)

    Good post guys Thanks for the info
    It is to damn bad about the fee station. It probbably won't even bring in enough to pay for it's installation and monitoring.
