A month or two ago, my buddy Kyle, of , invited me to head up to the famous Colorado River and fish Lees Ferry with him and a couple of other guys. Having always wanted to fish this unique and beautiful river, I jumped at the chance and started tying a whole passel of bugs. With the car packed to the gills and thermos full of coffee, we headed north to Flagstaff and then through the reservation to the river. The first day we met up with , a well known Arizona fly fisherman, and sped up the river on his boat. We found an empty bar with some prime riffle water and spent the rest of the day hooking fish on midge patterns, red hots, and eggs.

Arizona Fly Fishing: Spring - Arizona WanderingsArizona Wanderings

I spent the weekend in northern Arizona fly fishing the Colorado River for the famous Lees Ferry rainbow trout. The weather was beautiful, the fishing was fantastic, and the company was superb. I could not have asked for a better weekend with a great group of guys. I have a whole passel of pictures to sort through, but should have a report up in a day or two.

The hike/scramble down the canyon wall was well worth it, and the cold morning air felt good as we rigged our fly rods for the day ahead. It had been 27 degrees when we left the truck and in the sunless canyon, I am sure it was a bit colder. We stripped streamers for the first hour or so, but figured the water was much too cold for fish to be active. Antonio started off the day with a bang with an engorged brown trout taking his signature streamer. The picture below proves there are some real predators living in these Arizona streams and how productive Arizona fly fishing can be.
