Grand Canyon Fishing Guides
The Grand Canyon has some great fishing, and in particular fly-fishing. Although you can bring your fly rod or casting equipment any time you'll be rafting the Colorado River, or hiking one of its larger side canyons like Bright Angel Creek, the Guides and Outfitters are all located near Lee's Ferry. This less visited destination is where Grand Canyon National Park begins. The Grand Canyon offers opportunities for Rainbow and Brown trout in the Colorado River near Lee's Ferry in Marble Canyon and the upper canyon in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. If you head further down river you'll find striped bass that have been making their way up from Lake Mead, as well as catfish due to the warming water. Grand Canyon National Park is currently working on the removal and study of these fish species due to their role in the decline of the native humpback chub. You'll need an AZ fishing license to try your luck, and you can get one day, multi-day and annual licenses with a trout stamp. Read the guide below to learn more.
