  Chevelon Canyon Lake


Chevelon Canyon Lake is one of the finest Brown trout fisheries in the state of Arizona. The lake is located approximately 60 miles from Payson in the apache Sitgreaves National Forest at an elevation of 6400 feet. It is fairly hard to reach, as there are only two walk-in access points that require about a one mile hike down to the lake. Chevelon offers 6 miles of accessible shoreline for the shore fisherman. Fishing by a float tube is your best bet as hauling a small boat or canoe down the steep access trail can be quite difficult. If you do put a boat on the lake, motors cannot exceed 8 horsepower. Anglers fishing this lake are restricted to the use of artificial lures and flies only.

Fishing here is best suited for the experienced angler. It is not recommend for the beginning or inexperienced fisherman. This location is very remote with no developed campsites and there are no trash receptacles at this lake.
