Backpacking Adventures
Apr 12, 2018 - 12:58 PM - by Hookylite
I've recently got the bug for some adventure and am trying to put together a 3-night back packing trip in the Grand Canyon, early September of this year. Destinations of choice are Thunder Falls/Tapeats Creek or Bright Angel Creek (read that they both can produce some good fishing). Leaning towards Thunder Falls, as it is not as popular as Bright Angel and easier to get a permit (hopefully). Hoping to get some suggestions/info on which one would be a better option...

Aggressive little holdovers they are~
Apr 11, 2018 - 7:14 AM - by david vaughn
Spent the day on Woods Canyon yesterday (4-10), and the holdovers are hungry! No indecision on the fishies part on hitting the fly to get a free meal, that's for sure.

Hit the water around 11am, getting off around 6:15. Mostly mild breezes, adding a slight chop to the surface. An occasional bluster of wind to cool down my sun-burned chubby cheeks, thanks to abundant sunshine. Air temps were in the mid 60's, and the water was much warmer than I thought. Even with fleece pants... [Read More]

Snow pack
Mar 31, 2018 - 9:41 AM - by sublime167
Is anybody else concerned about the extremely low snow pack and it's effect on our small streams? Is this something that would make you reconsider planning trips this spring and summer?

Doing some research in advance of an upcoming trip to Chevy to see what flies might be worth considering this early in the season (in addition to leeches and crawdads). Came across this old post....

Lower Salt River - fishing buddy
Mar 30, 2018 - 1:23 PM - by ricksef
Lower Salt River
I wanted to reach out to the group, I am having no luck catching anything at the Lower Salt River. I have tried Wholly Buggars, SS Leaches both with bead heads & without, streamers and dry flies, I'm using a 5wt with floating line 9ft 4x tippet. Wanted to see if I could hook up with a fishing buddy to see if I could get some advice what I'm doing wrong. I've tried Phon Sutton, Water Users and hiked in above water users. Thanks

Rim Lakes are...
Mar 21, 2018 - 4:15 PM - by david vaughn
Took a drive towards Willow Springs this afternoon, and was pleased to see the main gate was locked open. There were 4 vehicles already in the main parking area, with a couple more in the picnic area.

Unfortunately, the lake is about 6' down from last summer.

I also noted the Rim Road was open from Hwy 260, so opted to see how far in I could make it.

The barriers are still up at the Woods Canyon turnoff, and Woods is also closed off roughly 1/2... [Read More]
