Trout Catch Statistics
Aug 22, 2017 - 3:09 PM - by Bucksnort
When I was teaching fly fishing at Lowry Air Force Base from 1986 to 1993, I wanted my students to understand what they would be facing whether they were in still or moving water. The Colorado Division of Wildlife, as it was known then, would conduct creel surveys. Someone would ask how many fish of each species you caught. DOW crunched numbers and came up with the average number of fish caught on a cold water outing. I assume this included all methods of angling. The number given to me,... [Read More]

Learning to Trout Fish in Oak Creek Canyon

Hi- My name is David Abelson. I was born in Phoenix almost 70 years ago! My passion for trout fishing began in 1955, when my family rented a place at Junipine Cabins in Oak Creek Canyon. The owner, Tommy Anderson, taught me how to use small hooks, light leaders & REAL salmon eggs (Atlas Brand-Chinook) to catch my first rainbow trout in the cold, clear waters of Oak Creek.

Now, over 60 years later, I've fished... [Read More]

Verde River below Bartlett
Aug 01, 2017 - 11:41 AM - by jimc
I was driving home from another peaceful, but unsuccessful fly fishing expedition on the Lower Salt River the other day (the stocked trout have found shelter beyond my reach) and thought to myself that there has to be another fishable stream in the area that does not require a trip thru Payson.

So as I perused the geography of Central Arizona, I noticed that Bartlett Dam lets out north of the reservation. Check the flow monitors (150+cfs) and depth gauge (1.5ft) I thought this... [Read More]

Rim Lakes
Aug 14, 2017 - 9:11 AM - by Bucksnort
Sometime last month, my grandson and I rented one of the small boats at Woods Canyon. We fished, with fly rods and hopper patterns, along the banks not far from the dock. He and I caught one tiger trout each and a few sun fish. I am returning to the Rim this week but I don't want to fish lakes with sun fish unless they are found in all the lakes and are at least 20 pounds in size.

My question is, do Willow Springs and Black Canyon lakes also have sun fish?
