Woods Canyon Lake consists of 55 surface-acres of cold, blue water.
This mountain lake has an average depth of 25 feet, and a maximum depth
of 40 feet. Chevelon Creek flows into and out of it.
Because it's deep, the lake maintains a good water quality, and is
stocked weekly from May through Sept. with catchable-sized Rainbow trout.
I strongly suggest that a visit to central AZ INCLUDE this lake.
Even if you "hate fishing," you can hike on several trails and observe
the area's wildlife. Within the last few months, I have observed Bald
Eagles, Great Blue Heron and Osprey (fish-eagles) on this lake. In the
surrounding forested areas, I have seen Black bears, Rocky Mountain elk,
and coyotes. I'm still searching for cougars & rattlesnakes. :)
