I usually try to get to the water around 4pm on the weekends, to give the tubers time to clear out. Nice fish too, usually in the 8" to 14" range.

Believe it or not, this isn’t a bad time to fish the Lower Salt River. This may be the last week we can stock it, maybe not. Regardless, it is getting an extra dose of trout this week that are being diverted from the fisheries that are closed due to fire restrictions. It’s a little trout bonus close to home, which isn’t a bad deal considering gas prices. First light is best.
