Arizona Fishing Is Fine

I Need...

Are you interested in selling on eBay and other auction sites?

We import gemstone rough from Madagascar. I am looking for someone interested in establishing and operating a business selling gemstone rough through the internet.

There's a great opportunity here to make money and build a business for yourself and your family. A thriving market for gemstone rough is out there, especially rough from Madagascar. A little research on eBay and Google will prove it.

Here is my contact link.

April 6, 2007 News Release

The Arizona Game and Fish Department is seeking your feedback to help us with our Fisheries planning efforts. We need your input to determine fishing participation in Arizona waters. 

Please take a moment to complete a brief survey. It should take no more than 5 minutes to complete. We will be asking for more detailed information about fishing in a follow-up survey very soon. To begin the survey, please click on the link below.



Arizona fishing is hot... and cold. You get to do both.

Arizona fishing waters offer huge contrasts. Warm desert lakes and cold high country waters are less than two hours apart. (The photo above is of the fog drifting off Lake Mary on a cool spring morning.)

Our desert lakes offer great warm water angling. And our beautiful high country lakes and streams provide great cold water angling.

Arizona fishing in the state's central and western desert lakes offers year-around sport, even in the very hot summer months.

Speaking of hot... when it gets too hot for day fishing, desert anglers often switch to nights and the early morning hours.

You can find more central Arizona fishing information here.

Arizona fishing in the desert lakes offers lots of action and excitement. Healthy bass, catfish, and crappie populations are the rule.

But  you often need a boat and proper gear to fish the more remote parts of our larger lakes.

Compare that with the smaller and very accessible cold water trout lakes and streams South of Flagstaff.


Arizona fishing in our high country waters is restful to your eyes and spirit. Although the lakes are smaller, they are rarely crowded.

Arizona fishing is better in the spring and fall seasons, but that's usually true all around the West. In our case it's true for both warm and cold waters.

In March, April, October, and November, while most anglers are looking to the desert lakes, a few are in the high country enjoying great trout fishing action.

Arizona fishing South of Flagstaff offers you a choice of several lakes and streams, including:

  • Ashurst Lake
  • Coconino Reservoir
  • Kinnikinick Lake
  • Upper Lake Mary
  • Lower Lake Mary
  • Oak Creek
  • West Fork (of Oak Creek)

With two exceptions, all of the waters listed above are accessed from Lake Mary Road. This road runs south from Flagstaff to Clints Well, where it meets Highway 87.

Oak Creek and the West Fork. Highway 89A follows Oak Creek north of Sedona, through Oak Creek Canyon..

Ashurst Lake (pictured above) is a popular lake, for camping as well as fishing.

Coconino Reservoir is a small lake reached by a very rough road south from Ashurst Lake.

Lower Lake Mary often suffers from a lack of water, but can produce fast action for stocked trout in the early spring. The lake is full, and good fishing is happening now.

Our local waters offer you a variety of fish, including rainbow trout, brown trout, northern and walleye pike, and even a few bass and crappie.

The links below provides more information.

These waters also offer a huge bonus. Most of them boast nearby campgrounds or day use areas that offer shade and cool breezes.

Fishing in the high country lakes South of Flagstaff offers a wonderful summer retreat to the cool mountains. One weekend per month is great medicine for desert dwellers.

Arizona fishing can be successful and satisfying without being hot. Get out and catch a few.
