    Lower Black River

    I am heading up there next Friday. Hoping the water has slowed and cleared up by then based on the dry weather these past couple weeks. I will let y'all know how it looks.

    Tonto Creek Fishing Report

    So hit up the Tonto Creek near Gisela on Saturday, as reported above the water flow was minimal and levels are low. We were able to hike in and found a deep pool where I caught a nice 3lb small mouth and couple other smaller ones (8-10 inches). I was with my mom so wasnt able to keep hiking the river as much as I would have liked, but there are some small mouth in the deeper pools if you can get to them. After Gisela we just drove up to Khols Ranch and fished the creek, a lot of decent trout swimming around we caught 3 on some power bait.

    Tonto Creek Fishing Report

    I have no problem sharing information, I have always answered peoples questions and posted my success or lack there of when asked. I may have not openly reported back about every trip I have taken, but I have never intentionally ignored requests for info. But I understand what you are saying, I will report back how it goes this weekend Cool man, I just noticed your last topic went unanswered, and we like reports too!! Not a report per se, but I can tell you that the Tonto Creek above Gun Creek USGS gauge is at 2 CFS right now, and it has been dryyyyyyy. Very few pockets of water remain anywhere near Tonto Basin. Thanks man I appreciate you sharing that, I will definitely share what I find up there.

    No Fish on the Lower Black!!!!!

    My friends and I have been up to the Black 4 times this year most recently in early October and fishing was lights out every single trip! Although we never fish near where the black turns into the salt like you described. Hopefully the algae bloom and parasites dont move further up river too far.

    Tonto Creek Fishing Report

    Hello, Taking my mother fishing this weekend, has anyone done any fishing recently or heard reports on the lower Tonto Creek near the Gisela area before it converges into Roosevelt? I know there are small mouth and trout in there but I cant find any reports on how the bite has been. Any information would be greatly appreciated, please feel free to just DM me if you prefer that. Thanks

    Small Mouth Fishing on the Black River

    Anyone been up recently in the last few weeks since the monsoon storms have died down? Curious how the water level and clarity is...

    Small Mouth Fishing on the Black River

    My buddy went up 2 weeks ago and said the water level is high and clarity is not that good. Also, roads can be extremely bad this time of year with all the rain so make sure you have a winch.

    Fishing on Verde River

    Isn't the Verde always kind of muddy looking though? (The Dirty Verde) HA

    Small Mouth Fishing on the Black River

    I know im must just trying to take the easiest driving roads possible until I get a new truck, my current truck is on its last leg. Have you fished up near Elwood or Canyon lately or heard recent reports? Last reports I could find for those spots were in 2013 when fishing was "decent" but still a few years away.

    Small Mouth Fishing on the Black River

    Thats cool man, I am heading up this weekend. I'll probably be a bit more up river then you were since I am coming in from San Carlos side, was thinking either near Elwood Canyon or Coupon Tank. I have never fished either of those spots but from what I hear they used to be really good before the fire but havent heard much about them since. Hoping I can get into some 2-3 pounders though!!!
