    Learning to 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 all over the western U.S. and practiced Environmental Law my entire career, all because of catching my first trout near Junipine Cabins in 1955.

    I decided to join this board because another member, "Trapper," recently reported an almost identical experience of being taught how to trout fish in Oak Creek Canyon, by Tommy Anderson the owner of Junipine Cabins. His post (Chevlon Canyon thread, 5-31-17) brought back so many memories that I decided to become a member. I hope Trapper reads this and will get in touch with me soon. David
