Top Fishing Spots near Mormon Lake

When you think about a trip to Arizona, you might conjure up images of a desert getaway filled with cacti, canyons, and dry, hot winds. However, Northern Arizona is a part of the state that is completely different from its southern counterpart. Here, you will find a rustic experience where you can enjoy your favorite outdoor activities, like camping, fishing, and hiking.

At Mormon Lake Lodge, we love to recommend these fishing spots to our travelers who want to try for that great catch:

Mormon Lake

Mormon Lake is a large lake in Arizona, but it is subject to the will of Mother Nature. In years of drought, Mormon Lake can dry up completely — which means there is no fishing to be had. However, when the rain and snowfall are plentiful, Mormon Lake is stocked with an abundance of fish. When fishing on Mormon Lake, you may catch trout or northern pike. You can fish from a boat or along the shoreline.

Slide Rock State Park

While many visitors head to Slide Rock State Park to enjoy the natural slide, there's also great fishing opportunities to be found here. Oak Creek at Slide Rock State Park is stocked with a healthy population of brown and rainbow trout. Anyone who is planning a day trip here will want to bring along their fishing pole as well as their swimsuit.

Workman Creek

For a scenic fishing spot, head to the waterfall at Workman Creek. The fishing is best here during the early summer when the creek is stocked with rainbow trout. For the most part, there are no native fish in this creek, but the stocked trout population makes for fun fishing in the peak summer season.
