North Fork of the White River

There are no products matching the selection.

The North Fork of the White River begins on the western slope of the White River. Here it flows 25 miles to merge with the East Fork of the White which forms the main stem of the White River. The land around the White is covered in thick pine, willow, and spruce trees. The water is cold and clear as a mountain stream should be. Before it meets the East Fork, the North Fork of the White River is prime trout fishing water. It has an easy gradient with many riffles and pools. The catch and release section at North Fork Ditch Camp, is well known for lots of strong fish, including the native Apache trout. In the warmer months, there’s good dry fly fishing with healthy populations of Baetis mayflies and Caddis. When there’s no surface activity, try a hopper-dropper set-up. Use a big foam hopper or large dry stonefly, with a beadhead hares ear or pheasent tail tied below. In the real heat of summer, just tie on a large foam stonefly or hopper pattern for some arm straightening results. If you find yourself in the eastern part of Arizona, give this river a try.
