Small stream that is catch and release, fly and lure only. Canyon Creek was affected by the Rodeo-Chedeski fire but has made a full recovery. The hatches on this stream are like nothing else you will see in Arizona.
Try to fish early morning or late afternoon with temps rising. Start with a dry dropper rig and change flies often if not getting bites.
Looks like some clouds will be rolling in this week. Fishing during overcast days will improve your chances. Thanks to all our customers
