Angler Report: Lees Ferry
Send your fishing reports and pictures to BFishing@AZGFD.gov
Neal M.: I drove up to Marble Canyon from Flagstaff on Monday. I wasn’t sure what I was going to catch. I figured they had some bass in that part of the Colorado River. Upstream from the boat ramp, I managed to catch 5 trout.
If you told me that I would be able to catch trout in Arizona during mid August when the temperature was around 100 degrees, I don’t think I would have believed it. I did see a lot of tiny black snail in the water along the bank. Not sure what they were or if they are invasive. Whatever they are, there sure were a lot of them.
Even if I didn’t catch any fish, the scenery on the drive up and along the river made it worth the effort getting there. Catching a few fish was a bonus.
