Thought a little more feedback may help. I've been throwing small (but not micro) poppers in assorted colors, also caught some there using a KC's Winged Creature ...otherwise throwing buggers, simi-buggers and simi's. The few SMB's I've caught in the Verde were caught on a fly that I put on out of frustration when other things weren't working: a Yellow Hornberg. This is typically an east/northeast fly commonly used for chasing Brookies. Good luck.

Coming from Idaho and Alaska... I can understand your disappointment! I don't have a regular place to fish but prefer smaller streams in northern AZ for trout. I haven't fished the Verde much since we've had the significant cool down. When it's colder bass usually eat less frequently but want a bigger meal... so maybe some clouser minnows would work well too.

my experience with bass is anything....i have caught my biggest bass when it mouthed the tippet/leader knot, then when i gave a quick strip it was on!....just try the typical flies....leech, bugger, san juan worm, and hoppers.
