Lower Salt River

I might be headed out soon to the Salt, so I was wondering, what I should expect from the trout in the river? Hoppers, indicator, dry dropper... what works? Thanks a million

forget about the trout..

sink tip and small simi seals, mayfly nymphs, midges. SLOWLY stripped through the deep holes. you'll feel a very small grab. set the hook and hold on.

Salt-Verde

I have fished the Salt a few times lately and did pretty good on Bass, but like everyone said, it is little more than a series of interconnected ponds.

The Verde below Bartlett has significantly more water, to the point that it is up to the shrub line. I was a bit surprised to step out of the trees and plop into the river. Its flowing quite nice and there are plenty of Bass, Suckers, and Carp.

Its not as scenic as the Salt, but there are less people and its real moving water. There are no trout though, at least none that I have caught.

Good luck and have fun out there!

Thanks! How is the Salt below Phon D Sutton, where the Verde and Salt merge?

I haven't messed with that part of the Salt, but it should be flowing pretty good below Sutton. No idea how the fishing is though.
