SHOW LOW CREEK – Fishing is poor. The access road over the dam is still closed for the winter.

SILVER CREEK – Fishing is excellent. The general fishing season starts at Silver Creek on April 1 and runs through September 30.  Bait fishing and a six trout daily bag limit are allowed at this time, however, the upper section is closed until Oct. 1.

SILVER CREEK – Fishing is good. Anglers are catching large rainbow trout on a variety of flies, including white bunny leeches, buggers, simi-seals, San Juan worms, egg patterns, shami leech, and zebra midges, as well as other flies.  The upper pool is fishing well, but there are a lot of big rainbows in the meadow and middle section as well.  Silver Creek is a spring creek and does not freeze over in the winter like other streams in the White Mountains. The creek is currently open to catch-and-release only, with artificial fly and lures with single barbless hooks only, from October 1 through March 31.

Cinda Howard of Fly Fish Arizona two weeks ago said fishing is good but has been getting tougher. Flies of choice have been bunny leeches in tan or black, Glo Bugs, San Juan worms and zebra midges. There also has been some top-water action, especially when the sun hits the water and generates midge hatches. Water temperatures are in the 40s.

Fishing is good. Anglers are catching Apache trout and large rainbow trout on a variety of flies. White or black leeches, buggers, simi-seals, egg patterns, and zebra midges, as well as other flies, have been working well. The creek is currently open to catch-and-release only, with artificial fly and lures with single barbless hooks only, from October 1 through March 31. A revision of the artificial fly and lure definition is currently being proposed, but in the meantime please do not use any lures or flies with scents or flavors as these “baited” artificial lures cause significantly higher mortality than traditional artificials
