I am against stocking rainbow trout at the Lees Ferry Walk In Area for the following reasons:

I have the LLBean with the BOA. They are well constructed boots and the BOA has worked well for me, mostly at Lees Ferry. I was a little leery of the BOA because of all the sand at the Ferry, but I...

Not to keep beating that dead horse, but I have also seen big standing waves at the Ferry, six mile canyon comes to mind. Water temps in Feb this year were 47-48 degrees. My Dad and I were fishing...

I really think a lot of the risk is weather related. On a calm day, you can float it in about anything. I've seen guys do it on inner tubes. Windy days are a different story, and if a real storm...

Sunfish, Rotenone & The Ferry

Three words I never thought I'd hear together: Sunfish, Rotenone & Lees Ferry. When my Dad mentioned he'd seen a brief clip on the evening news about this, I was sure he had the wrong dam, or even...

Thanks, I see how that could work. We have nylon air brake tubing at work that might sub for the tube. Maybe a big bead or conehead. I'm tying #6 and #8 heavily weighted ssl's this week.
