So I've come to the conclusion that getting a tonto year parking pass for Arizona . Since they cover all tonto areas including grande canyon.
Anyone hear anything as far as hot spots here in Arizona urban and main lakes ? I want to go more local and pop some panfish with the girls
Went to saguaro
And one of the sheriffs told me all circle k and walgreens sell them. Soooo hot footed it back in the lancer to power rd to walgreens and got a one day pass. ..went to Phon d sutton instead and had a blast with teaching the daughters to use spinning rod setups. They've had zebco types till now. They did quite well despite my oldests combo having crapola line. Changed to crappie max 4 lb since when she used my rod with the crappie max she loved it. It's inexpensive , sensitive and does not birds nest ever.
The fish...well there are bites in the still water areas but with the flow rate super high due to them releasing dam water most of the faster water is so strong anything less than 1/8 to 1/4 ounce anything gets swept downstream in seconds. I did see the fly fish guys pullin some decent wild rainbows. The recent stocked ones are size range from fry to a few inches . Should do good in a few months in growth terms but the wild ones are already decent size just too finicky for lures quite yet.
Should be an interesting year in the az fishing world
