Trout are being stocked

Lower Salt River - Phoenix, AZ (Maricopa County)

by Arizona Game & Fish Department

Trout are being stocked. They can be caught on small Rooster Tails, Panther Martin, and Blue Fox spinners. Also try PowerBait and worms under a bobber. Fly fisherman should try Caddis Nymphs or attractor-style streamers such as Wooly Buggers and olive / brown / black leeches. Bass can be caught on Yo-zuri, Strike King and Rapala jerk baits, small cranks, spinnerbaits, or drop shots on the bottom. Once flows begin, which fluctuate year to year, the fish spread out from their stocking locations and flies become much easier to present.
