While you are on vacation in Sedona, Arizona and looking for some outdoor family activities, why not plan on doing some fishing? Yes, there is fishing in the desert! There are plenty of places to take yourself, or your family, fishing near Sedona. You can even take a guided fishing trip if you prefer, rather than striking out on your own. Two of my all time favorite places to cast are: Oak Creek There are many reasons I like to fish in Oak Creek. The main reason I like to cast in Oak Creek would have to be the scenery. It is one of the most relaxing and beautiful areas near Sedona to fish. The clear canyon stream is easily accessible with a scenic road leading right down the middle of it. You have a chance of catching rainbow trout, brown trout, smallmouth bass and flathead catfish.
