Fly Line:
We are recommending a 4 or 5 weight, floating fly line for most of the fishing on Canyon
Creek. Some anglers would prefer a 6 weight fly floating fly line for heavier nymphs and

Leaders should range in sizes from a 0X for streamers up to a 6X for midges and small dry
flies. Lengths ranging from nine feet up to twelve feet in length are suggested.

Extra tippet material ranging from 0X to 6X should be available for the leaders we list above.

Fly Rods:
We suggest either a 4, 5 or 6 weight fly rod for each line size you choose to fish. That will
handle about anything you will catch from Canyon Creek. It should have a medium fast to
fast action and be nine feet in length.

Fly Reels:
The fly reel you use for the 4, 5 or 6 weight line should be light and have good drags,  
preferably disc drags. You don't want to loose a nice trout because of a poor or rough
operating drag.

I wouldn't want to wade without waders even if the water was warm enough.

Wading Boots:
Felt soles would be our choice. The new rubber soles may work well. We haven't tried them
there yet.

Wading Staff:
We would call it optional.

Landing Net:
A landing net would be purely optional.

Trout Flies:
Perfect Flies have proven to be effective on the Canyon Creek's stream-bred brown trout.
They closely imitate all the real aquatic insects and terrestrials insects that are found in and
around the stream. We have specific imitations of all the insects in all stages of life. If you
haven't already tried them, we certainly hope you will. We are confident you will find them
highly effective.
