I can see you're not getting much of a response here. If you are at Havasu....learn the lake and the river below and above it. It's probably the most productive bass fishery in the state right now. I'll be there Monday and Tuesday looking for smallie spawners. I'll pm you a report when I get back. I know they're making beds now but have moved back out in the lake because of lower water temps. After this weekend it should light up good.

I was just hoping to make some new fly fishing buddies and also go after some wild trout.. I heard there's some good apache trout out here!!... I mostly mess with the carp on a 3wt... 30-40 pounders really give u a run on a lite rod like that!!!! Maybe we could hook up..

Not sure too many of us live out there but lots of us go there in the spring for the great March and April bed fishing. The Apache's are easy, just head up in May and go where they stock them. Very easy fish to catch.

They're a lot like brookies, opportunistic feeders who will hit almost any bushy dries and shiny wets.

I think the Apaches get a bad rap because the 8-10" stockers tend not to be a strong of fighters as the rainbows on average. However, the wild Apaches and hybridized fish I have found to be quite scrappy.

+1 Heartily agree. The wild fish I've caught were beautiful and strong.
