That would be great.

lake powell? how remote is that? ive never been. for a get away. seclusion and solitude. i would suggest knoll lake on the mogollon rim. or the white mountains have tons of little lakes on and off the reservation that have amazing trout fishing. not sure as to how secluded it is but lees ferry is supposed to be one of the best fly fishing spots in the south west.

woods canyon is nice, i think i saw my first bald eagle there...i prefer to drive 25 miles down 300 to knoll though. alot more secluded then woods canyon and in my opinion prettier.

what kind of powerbait do you usually use? i think i have sherbert. a green one and a purple one with crushed nymphs in it. and it never gets used unless the kids are along.
i love good ole flys.

Urban Lakes are stocked with Trout every Two weeks in winter and Catfish in summer. In the summer it great to get away to the Rim Country Lakes for cooler weather, camping and great fishing. All these areas are family friendly.

If you are a real Adventurist, try going down into the Canyons for trout.

ha, im the adventurous/backpacking type. i want to get out to the blue mountains. there is supposed to be some really remote country and little creeks packed with trout up there. on the rim i usually stick to knoll. never really gone up with anyone willing to get off the beaten path.

Horton creek

Horton and Tonto creeks are great places to fish casually and camp. There are never any people up there and its really clean and you can hike up to the spring and get fresh clean water. Good trout in the river that are completely natural, so if we catch lil guys we carefully put them back.
