Chevelon Canyon Lake
Shane V.: Best day was Sat., Aug 12 at Bear Canyon. This was my daughters first catch ever, it was awesome! The kids even pulled enough crawfish out of there to have a little crawfish boil that evening as well. Good times. Shore fishing, we caught quite a few rainbows fishing worms on a Santee rig to keep the bait away from the crawfish. It was a proud day.
(Also) fished Chevelon Aug. 11, packed our zodiac and trolling motor down on our quad. We got our limit trolling (plastic) worms — nice size rainbows!
AZGFD note: Special regulations at Chevelon is a limit of two trout; artificial fly and lure only. Also, there is unlimited smallmouth and largemouth bass and unlimited channel and flathead catfish.
