Fall is on the way in Sedona! A big thanks to our clients from Florida, New Jersey x 3, North Carolina, British Columbia, and Phoenix. Victor and I are starting to see the cooler morning temperatures, as well as hatch changes and much needed water level rises. We recently had Monsoon rains which put a rise of about 2 feet on Oak Creek. A few trips ended up being cancelled or delayed, but we are clear and back to normal flows. The water temp is still hovering around 54-57 degrees. If you are planning a trip be sure and pack a fleece or two for our early morning starts as it has been a bit chilly in the canyon. Catching any fish you say? Well yes, we have some really successful days on Oak Creek, 10-15 fish days have been the norm, with lengths up to 19″. Olive has been the magic color for us in September, not matter what we are throwing, it is Olive! Here is a note on helping us clean up our favorite waterway:
Friends of Oak Creek invite you to join them at 8:30 am Saturday, September 21 at Indian Gardens 8375 SR 89A to help clean up areas of Oak Creek. Cumulative totals of trash removed by the FOC and Oak Creek Ambassadors topped 2500 lbs, 30 lbs of feces and 42 diapers. Gear, except gloves, will be provided. Contact Kathy at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit oakcreekwatershed.org for more information.
Also a quick note, please join the Sedona Fly Fishing Adventures crew as we will be at the ISE Phoenix show February 20th-23rd at the Glendale arena. We will have you chance to sign up for the 2014 season as well as our custom Oak Creek rods and our other sponsors gear for sale!! Here are a few shots from the month, we look forward to seeing you on the water!
