Never Mind.
Their still in there. I just had to be patient.
I also had to adjust my drift lines because of the 6 inch drop in water level.

The water levels have been decreased significantly over the past week.

Anybody else notice the difference?
Any advice as to where they are...

Brown trout locations

Thank you, Joe.
I will keep that list handy when I travel outside of Phoenix.
I noticed that none of these bodies of water are within an hour of Phoenix.
I suppose that's how it should be.

Lower salt-Phon D

I was curious if you fish above or below the confluence with the Verde.
I saw some very picky trout in the shallows above.

I was wondering where the trout end up after they are savaged by the bass near the bridge.
Does azgfd stock trout all along the salt river OR do they dump them at the bridge and let them scatter?

Took the trip to Bartlett Lake and went below the dam.
Was not prepared for the amount of time it took to get there AND the amount of walking required once I was there.

East Verde

I would like any advice regarding the East Verde.
For instance, is it better to go all the way up Houston Mesa Road or is it better down by the 87 bridge? Dry, Dropper, Streamers? Riffles or Pools?...

Lower Salt River

I have a question: Are the trout able to adjust to the high flow rates (for TUBING) in the summer time? These high flow rates really mess with my already-limited ability to fly fish and so I've given...
