Phoenix Urban Lakes and Canals

Tip of the week: 
Techniques: 

If targeting Carp, make sure to spot the fish first and cast in front of them by 10-15ft giving your fly a chance to hit the water unseen and sink to the bottom as they approach. We have several carp specific flies in the shop, but we fish bright colored eggs as much as any other pattern. When targeting trout or bass we generally fish streamer patterns like buggers or messy minnows with a fast retrieve.

Seven-day forecast: 

Winter trout stockings should be happening the week of Nov 16th. Cooling weather will make fishing better, and more comfortable! Carp fishing is good, look for moving fish in the canals systems that are open to fishing.
