Dead Horse Ranch State Park + The Verde Valley
Located in Verde Valley, between Cottonwood and Clarkdale is the sweet spot to GO FISHING at Deadhorse Ranch State Park.
This is a beautiful state park and about 10-15 degrees cooler than Phoenix. There are 3 lagoons that are stocked by Arizona Game and Fish with Rainbow Trout. Many flies have been shown to be successful however we recommend a Black Balanced Leech and an Egg Sucking Squirrel Leech, 3-5ft under an indicator.
Plan to fish from the shore or for an added ‘adventure’ you can float it in a pontoon or float tube.
