Fishing

Woods Canyon Lake has rainbow trout stocked by the Arizona Game & Fish Department, as well as some brown trout. The lake also contains bluegill, but the primary fishing activity revolves around trout fishing. For the kids, bluegill can be a blast - they are aggressive and will feed on tiny pieces of worm on a small trout hook. Maintained campgrounds, a general store and spectacular views make this a fisherman's paradise and a great place to take the family camping in Arizona.
