After our first day in the White Mountains did not live up to our expectations, Antonio and I did a bit of exploring on another stretch of water also in the Whites. The day turned out to be better than expected and we both were able to pull in some beautiful brown trout from one of the more remote creeks in the state.
Hopper fishing is definitely in full effect, and although on occasion I will strip a streamer through a deep pool, it seems that most fish are willing to come to the surface for a grasshopper pattern. Fly fishing in Arizona can often times be very frustrating, but then there are days where everything comes together that make it all worth while. This was one of those days. If you have a chance, head north for a bit of White Mountain fly fishing.
