I will be heading down to Bryce Canyon and Zion National park the first week of September and I was hoping I could get a bit of advice. I have been doing a bit of research (including the search function on this site. There was a great thread that covered this topic a couple of months ago) about the flyfishing opportunities in this area and I still have a few questions. I am interested in river fishing and have learned that opportunities exist at the Virgin River and Sevier River. I have also come across references to Parowan Creek, Mammoth Creek and Assay Creek. Questions: 1. I know it’s hot down there this time of year; do these rivers fish in early September? 2. If they do, are there any patterns in particular I should be tying/buying for this time of year? I have never fished this part of the country so I am completely clueless. Feel free to PM if you are more comfortable. I will put out the obligatory “not looking for secret spots, just general info, etc., etc.”. I would be interested in your thoughts on the overall accessibility of the streams I mentioned. I will not have a ton of time to fish since I will be with the wife so knowing I will have at least some access prior to making the trip to a river would be appreciated. Thanks! And like I always mention when I put out a request for information, I am not an expert on much out west (although I do know the Missoula MT area fairly well). However, I do have a lot of knowledge of the rivers of southern New England if anybody will be finding there way back east anytime soon. Thanks again!
