Fly Fishing Newbie - Learn How to Fly Fish

Kings River

Kings River - Kings Canyon Sequoia National Park - If you live in California and haven't visited, you're missing out.  Even if you don't fish, this place is awesome!  My wife and I camped in Kings Canyon in early October (they close the Park mid to late October due to snow), and had a wonderful time.  The fishing is excellent with both Rainbows and Browns that eagerly take flies.

Lake Evans

Lake Evans is located about 100 miles North of Los Angeles in the Buena Vista Recreation Area, along with Lake Webb (a great place for spinning rods and hotdogs - if you like Catfish).

 

In order to fish Lake Evans you must pay an additional fee at the BV gate.  The stillwater fly-fishing is good early in the morning (shocker, right?).  Get out there before the sun comes up and throw black gnats or mosquito flies in small sizes.  Once the sun starts to hit the water I strongly suggest switching to a small popper.  The Bluegill are aggressive and lurk in shallow water and tend to gather at the dock.

Sevier River, UT

One of the first places we stayed in Utah was the Riverside Resort and RV Park.  I didn't know it then, but the stream access was going to be better than almost anywhere else I would find.  The manager of the place is quite friendly and the RV park is clean with full hook-ups including Wi-Fi.  Also, as a guest, you can fish the Sevier River that runs through the property.

Mammoth Creek, UT

One of the most beautiful settings that I was able to fish while in Utah was Mammoth Creek fairly close to Hatch, UT.  The road back to the creek was rough and muddy, but the payoff was worth it.  After fishing for about an hour I was treated to a sunset that my camera doesn't do justice reproducing.

Lees Ferry - Guided Trip

We left Utah after several days of very windy and cold weather that froze fly line to rod guides between casts.  Add to that the constant frustration with the lack of accessible fishing waters in Southern Utah, and you have a darn good reason to explore Arizona. We had been driving most of the day, taking in the beautiful landscapes, before passing through a small town nestled against a huge cliff wall about 10 miles from the Colorado River.  Sandra hollered at me that I had just passed a fly shop (a good sign that there is fishing nearby), so I pitched the RV into a turnout with a nasty drop-off that nearly toppled us - then executed mid-highway u-turn, and headed back to the Lees Ferry Anglers Fly Shop.
