Bldeagle10, If your talking about the Blue Ridge Primitive Area by the New Mexico state line, beware of high concentration of Bear in that area. Good fishing, but lots of Bear.

Some of the streams are either closed to fishing due to native trout restoration projects, or have been impacted by recent fires....

But yes, some are packed full of trout.

Chitty Creek got blown out after the recent fire, so I wouldn't waste any time there.

I fish at a stocked lake in the Red Mountain area out in east Mesa between work and soccer. If I'm "going fishing" I'll find a quiet mountain lake outside of the city.

My wife and I wanted to get into fly fishing but had never done it, so we went up to lees ferry and got a guide for the day thought marble canyon outfitters...best decision we ever made. They were very helpful and taught us the basics needed to get started in the sport. Lees Ferry is also a great place to to fish, the deep canyons are beautiful.

I really enjoy Bear Canyon on the rim. I fish the back side of the lake and camp in the primitive camping spots. I've always done great at that lake, sometimes the catch isn't all that big, but it's peaceful (unless there's a troop camping there, then it's really annoying) and I always come out with 3-6 pan sized trout per day.
