Fishing Outlook & Conditions
Orvis Phoenix 's Tip of the Week
Freshly stocked with 700 14"-14.5" Rainbow trout and there is approximately 20 or so BIG fish stocked from Tonto Creek Fish Hatcheries Show Ponds! So these fish won't be as keyed in on small nymphs as fish in years past this early in the season!
Directions open in app
5-Day Outlook as of 11/19/23
Dry droppers early in the season. i would be moving around stripping flesh flies and bunny leeches. Dont be afraid to throw some double indicator rigs into the " The Hole". I would be focusing on smaller mayfly patterns right now, with some smaller annelids as the time drags on.
Techniques & Tips as of 11/19/23
Try stripping leech patterns, flesh flies and woolly buggers. Dry droppers on the right days. Double indicator rig with small midges and annelids.
