Question Spring Bass

I'm pretty new to bass fishing, especially on a fly, I'm used to trout in Montana. I've tried the Verde south of Horseshoe and south of Bartlett. I went out today, and got skunked again. Water temp 52 degrees, and a pretty swift current with high water levels. Any tips on where to find bass on the Verde? And if anyone is willing to PM me with a honey-hole or 2, that would be great (I always c&r).

The Verde is cold and high right now, I would hold off on targeting bass until runoff begins to slow and water starts to clear.

The good news is that Horsheoe is full now.

Verde has good bass fishing all along its course.

The Verde system as a whole doesn't produce size but numbers. I agree with Westy... too cold and fast right now for the fishing to be very good.

I would fish the lakes rather than the rivers. Much better odds and more fish.
