Re: Reavis Ranch (108 n?) (109 s?)

It's because you can see your car most of the way. Ya I must have said "Ohhhh man we are almost there" for the last 2+ hours of that hike >< Ive gone to the North TH in a Honda Civic, you should be able to make it in the Echo. You have no chance of making it to the S. TH. Follow the directions and ...

Re: Fish in Reavis Creek?

Is there someplace where Reavis Creek flows above ground for more than a few feet? The full length as of today! :y: Actually I'd imagine there's just a crapload of snow up there, given that globe is covered in it right now. Speaking of the storm though I was watching the flows on some of the creeks...

Re: Fish in Reavis Creek?

Keep in mind that the lake didn't exist in Reevis's time, the dam was built about 35 years after his death. Before then the fish in the salt would have likely been native chubs and a few other species now nearly extinct. Roosevelt dam was built 9-10 years after his death and would have killed most ...

Re: Fish in Reavis Creek?

Is there someplace where Reavis Creek flows above ground for more than a few feet? Theres a few larger pools if I remember correctly. Main reason I was asking is I know the climate in that valley is almost like that of the rim country and I figured perhaps it could support some small fish colonies ...

Re: Superstition Ridgeline via Hiero

Going up Hieroglyphic instead of down makes a big difference. Although going down Siphon Draw, tired at the end of the day, was work; it was still way better than going down that steep upper end of Hieroglyphic canyon. There's a flat rock section (on a 50%+ grade) with some loose rock on it that wo...

Re: Grand Canyon alternative

As hikaz mentions alot of the stuff in southern Utah is just about as epic feeling as the grand is. The Grand Gulch area is really amazing as it not only has some amazingly beautiful sandstone canyons but absolute TONS of indian ruins nestled in the cliffs, some in amazing condition.

Re: Fly Fishing in Dead Horse State Park

I learned something about fly casting at my dude ranch job last summer. Hope to learn more if they hire me back this summer. I learned the basic cast pretty quickly. (I think because I'm a pretty good yoyo player, I just thought of it as learning a new yoyo trick. I'm serious!) I think the rest of ...

Fly Fishing in Dead Horse State Park

So I'm starting to get into the wonderful sport of fly fishing after having gotten a rod this past Christmas. I've been practicing technique on the Lower Salt but have yet to catch anything (still having alot of fun learning to cast correctly consistently). Anywho I've been looking all around and it...

Re: Superstition Ridgeline via Hiero

Well don't wait up for me, I'm going to have to bow out on this. I just spent most of the night trying to get into my car as I lost my keys and had to pay a bunch to get new ones made. I would get 4 1/2-5 hours of sleep tops, and I just don't think that's going to help on this hike.

Re: Superstition Ridgeline via Hiero

Been over a year now since I've gotten to do this so I'm definitely interested. Glad were doing siphon draw at the end though....I don't think I ever want to do ridgeline with siphon draw first.

Man it's too bad I'm graduating about 2 months before that so I'm not too sure on what my plans will be after that. TBH though I've been thinking of taking a month or two off before actually looking for a job once I get out and doing a longer hike like this is something I've been really wanting to d...

Re: Help for Texan coming in January

Well howdy fellow Texan (born in Houston raised in DFW here). I might be a bit impartial to this since it's so close to the valley but I highly recommend the Superstitions, especially this time of year as there is generally more water sources and the temps are just perfect.

Saguaro was treating me quite well for a while there. Think me and every other fishermen there spent most of the late summer and fall using drop shot rigs with a robo-worm on it. The bass were just eating it like it was candy and I got a few good 6+ lunkers with it too. Pretty much any of the Salt R...

Re: Grand Gulch 2010

Depending on dates I would really love to head back to this wonderful area again. I had an absolute blast doing it earlier this year and I really need to get my butt back into backpacking (when I can.....only 5 months from graduation and I've been SUPER busy).

Re: Got myself a kayak

That Otter is a classic recreational kayak; wide cockpit for easy in, easy out, nice flat design for tons of stability, and reasonably lightweight for easy transport. They're perfect for slow flatwater paddling or for light class rivers (I'd be hesitant to take one higher than class II, but they ha...
