Had a lovely day up on the Catch and Release section of Canyon recently... The sun was shining and the bite was on. We headed up around five and were fishing by seven, and Antonio caught the first fish about five minutes into it and it was a big fat BOW! We ran into an AZGFD employee and he told us they haven't stocked bows in the C&R section for three years! We did get into some browns too as you can see and I even got a nice bow a little farther upstream. We started off with a little deep nymphing which was really productive because it was pretty cold out and because Antonio suggested it... (I guess even a blind squirrel finds an acorn every now and then) Later that day it got up to about 75 and it turned into a GREAAAAT dry fly day. All in all another fabulous day on an Arizona stream.
