Believe it or not, Arizona is home to productive fly fishing, especially in its high elevation lakes and streams. In fact, it has more trout lakes and streams than most anglers could explore in a lifetime. However, as you might expect, the state’s extreme climate and rugged terrain pose unique challenges to the fish and those who pursue them.

Join Gentry Smith as he provides a two-part introduction to fly fishing Arizona’s high country trout lakes and streams with emphasis on the Mogollon Rim and the White Mountains regions. He’ll discuss appropriate fly fishing equipment, common hatches, fly selection, access, and share tips and techniques for successfully angling his home waters through the seasons. Combine this information with a little luck, and who knows, you might land the fish of a lifetime right here in Arizona.
