Many people visit the red rock country of Sedona but don’t realize the small creek running through town, is one of the best trout streams in the Southwest. Oak Creek is spring fed from upper Oak Creek Canyon and flows 42 miles to the Verde River. It is in the upper section of the creek that holds feisty trout willing to hit your fly. Oak Creek is stocked with rainbows but holds a nice population of wild brown trout. Some of the best fishing is where the West Fork of Oak Creek meets with Oak Cree downstream. Here you will find many riffles and pools with trout willing to take your fly. A popular method for catching fish on Oak Creek, is with a bushy dry fly or hopper then hang a Hares Ear or Pheasant tail nymph off the rear about 18”-20” below. Swinging a Woolly Bugger in a deep pool or cut bank will almost always be good for a brown or two. Hatches are far and few between here but usually Baetis will show up in the afternoon so a Adams will work great as well as other attractor Patterns. So next time you’re in Sedona check out this little Gem.
