Rocky Point (Puerto Penasco)
Sep 20, 2017 - 3:00 PM - by Bucksnort
If I go to Rocky Point with my pontoon boat carried in this manner, will I draw unwanted attention when returning the U.S.? No, I'm narcotics runner or dealer.

Lower Salt River
Sep 15, 2017 - 8:28 AM - by Bucksnort
I spoke to an angler who floats the Salt and fishes with spinning rods. He puts in at the parking area where the road to Saguaro Lake crosses over the Salt then goes downstream a couple of miles. I have forgotten the name of his take out point. He says he does it in inner tubes but I don't know just how these are arranged.

I have a pontoon boat which is powered either by oars or flippers or both. When the weather turns cooler, I may be interested in doing this.

Tube Flies
Sep 14, 2017 - 9:34 PM - by ejcrist
Anyone around here tie tube flies? I'm just starting to get into it and ordered an HMH Spinner vice for tying them. It seems to me tube flies would do very well for Pike up at Lake Mary and probably for Bass too down here in the valley lakes. I haven't ran into very many people in AZ tying on tubes but maybe that's because most fly fisherman here seem to go after trout exclusively, and tube flies wouldn't be very applicable in that area IMO.

Frye Creek/Gila Trout Update
Sep 14, 2017 - 10:54 AM - by Fish Manager
As most are probably aware we had a wildfire blow through the Gila Trout habitat in the Pinaleno Mountains in July. Surveys were completed earlier this week and the outcome for the fish and the habitat is devastating.

I'm sad to report that there were no fish sampled in either Ash Creek or Frye Creek. We were hopeful that fish had survived in these areas but the damage was much worse than we had expected. Going forward we will be assessing our options for getting fish back... [Read More]

Personal Flotation Devices
Sep 06, 2017 - 4:54 PM - by JiminAZ
Now that these are required for use when using a pontoon boat, what kind is everyone using or could recommend? I got a friendly warning from a nice Game & Fish guy and don't want to push my luck! I'm thinking a belt type might work best.

The Dream Stream and Trout Unlimited
Sep 11, 2017 - 3:55 PM - by Bucksnort
For those of you who make trips to the Dream Stream and who adore the location, let me tell you how close all of us came to never being able to easily access the two parking areas above the gauging station.

As you know, there is a parking area across the road from the gauging station. This gives you good access to the river below the station. If you continue south on the road from the station and in about one quarter of a mile, you turn right or west, to access the two... [Read More]
