Jake Jaeger of AZGFD will update us on the restoration of Canyon Creek. Located at the base of the Mogollon Rim, Canyon Creek is well known for its wild, naturally-reproducing brown trout population, supplemented with stocked rainbows, and is designated catch and release and artificial fly and lure only from OW Bridge downstream to the reservation. Natural Channel Design Inc. created the design plan, and Merritt Construction implemented the work. The project was constructed in two phases: the first phase from OW Bridge downstream to the lowermost elk exclosure was completed in March 2015, the second phase from the lowermost elk exclosure downstream to Valentine Canyon was completed in March 2016. The project included bank stabilization, channelization of flow, and the addition of trout habitat.
Jake will tell us about the success of the project and improved fishery. He is AZGFD’s Region VI Aquatics Program Biologist and holds a primary focus on native and wild trout. Originally from Minnesota, Jake graduated in 2010 from Arizona State University with a degree in Conservation Biology and Ecological Sustainability and has been with AZGFD for six years. Join us on August 11 for an interesting and informative program about the restoration of one of Arizona’s best-known brown trout streams.
I purchased a small pontoon used boat. I need to purchase some kick fins to use with it. I am looking at http://www.amazon.com/Classic-Accessories-63227-Thruster-Float/dp/B0000AS5RQ on Amazon. I have also seen Some tubing booties advertised by Adamsbuilt that would protect my wader feet. http://www.adamsbuiltfishing.com/collections/wading-boots/products/knott-creek-neoprene-booties
Any thoughts on these products? Suggestions?

There is a new moon Aug. 2, making this a superb time to fish at night using submersible lights. Top pick is Lake Pleasant for stripers using anchovies. Fish at night using little or no weight. Cut your bait into thirds, but cut your chum into quarters. Chum liberally. Add corn for a little extra fish excitement (it will also attract sunfish, carp and catfish). The more fish activity you can generate, the better — it’s like a dinner “gong” going off under water that attracts predatory fish. … See Complete article below
