Lake Picachos is one of Mexico’s newest and hottest largemouth bass lakes. The lake was created by the erection of the Picachos Dam on the Presidio River, which was completed in 2009. The sprawling lake encompasses approximately 38 square miles and is located 30 miles northeast of the resort town of Mazatlán.
Billy Chapman operates the Anglers Inn on the shores of Lake Picachos. The resort features double-occupancy suites, a full-service dining area, bar and tackle shop. Guests at Anglers Inn enjoy five-star personal service from the staff and outstanding dining nightly (all meals are provided, including breakfast and lunch).
First-time visitors will be impressed with the variety of cover on Lake Picachos. Sheer rock cliffs dot the shoreline, while flooded standing timber and dense brush piles hold plenty of trophy largemouth.
Fishing begins each day at dawn with guides who tend to every need and are intimately knowledgeable about the lake. Take our test team’s word: The guides at Anglers Inn know where the big ones hide and what they’re biting. (Photo by Scott Bernarde)
