|Apache Trout dink|
We put in a lot of effort to catch one of these but it is really worth it. This weekend was another whirlwind trip to the White Mountains. We took off Saturday at 3p, ran up to Silver Creek and fished a couple of hours, spent the night in Springerville. Woke up o-dark thirty and blazed over to the West Fork of the Black River and up to the headwaters of Thompson Creek.
We then went over and sampled the Little Colorado up to the second meadow.
It was a really fun fishing adventure.
