What Lakes are closet to you?
Black Canyon Lake is about 20 minutes away from us. Like all Mogollon Rim Area Lakes, Black Canyon Lake is scenically forested. Although the surrounding forest was adversely affected by the 2002 Rodeo-Chediski Fire and some trees around the lake were charred, a sizeable portion of the lake is lushly forested. Because of the danger of falling trees damaged by the 2002 fire, the entire area around the lake is limited to day use only until further notice. Check with the Arizona Game and Fish Department for future changes. The lake sits at an elevation of about 7,000 feet in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests about 15 miles southwest of Heber-Overgaard, Arizona.
Lake Size. The lake’s water surface is 78 acres with an average depth of 35 feet and a maximum depth of 60 feet.
Fish Variety. Primarily Rainbow Trout with some illegally introduced Largemouth Bass and Green Sunfish. Varying sizes of rainbow trout are stocked in the spring and early summer.
Fishing. The best way to catch the larger trout is fly fishing from a boat or float tube. Good surface bites are reported in the evening with dry flies. Trolling early and late in the day can produce larger trout. Try nightcrawlers off the bottom of the lake. Children will have fun catching green sunfish with bobbers and nightcrawlers. Fishing licenses with a trout stamp are required for all anglers 14 years and above. The daily bag limit is six trout, six bass, and unlimited sunfish or three trout for unlicensed anglers under the age of 14.
Boating. Launching Area, 10HP Single or Less
Directions. Take Highway 260 southwest of Heber-Overgaard to Forest Road 300. Go south on 300 for about 2.4 miles. Turn east (left) on Forest Road 86 about 3 miles to the lake turnoff. If you are driving from Payson, take Highway 260 northeast and follow the same directions.
