December, 2012 – Fishing Report

3 Jan

Arizona, Valley Of The Sun, December, 2012, we cast out final lures, flick our last flies and release the last fish of the year and look forward to 2013 with the anticipation of spending more time on the water and enveloping ourselves with the peace and solitude of that activity known as “fishing.” The final month of the year proved to be a little more hectic than planned. Though time spent on the water was not “quantity-time”, it was “quality-time.”

With the cooler air and water temperatures and the State’s stocking program, our thoughts are no longer focused on catfish and panfish for the dinner plate.


Our thoughts somewhat remain with the largemouth bass that will still strike a lure or fly in the colder temperatures.

Our thoughts are mostly concentrated on the prize fish for us desert dwellers, the rainbow trout.

To inspire you to wet a line, let’s revisit one of our favorite videos, the first stocking of rainbow trout at Red Mountain Lake in Mesa. Please click this convenient link:
