About: - Becker Lake Named for Gustav and Julius Becker. It is the oldest man-made lake in Arizona. Several outlaws reportedly are buried at the bottom.

The lake is a shallow reservoir and is known for large rainbow trout. The lake averages 85 acres in size with a mean depth of 10 feet and a maximum depth of 22 feet. This shallow body of water is kept completely mixed during open water periods by high winds characteristic of this rain shadow region of the White Mountains. Surface water temperatures range from 32 degrees F in winter to extremes of 75 degrees F in late summer. A partial ice cover normally forms in early December and lasts through January.

Periodic water quality sampling characterizes Becker as a hardwater, productive lake. The majority of the lake's basin is covered by either submergent or emergent aquatic vegetation.

Elev. 6,900 ft. Two miles northwest of Springerville, off U. S. 60.

Restrooms are on-site: other facilities are available in Springerville-Eager.
