There are more than 400 miles of rivers and streams along with over 50 lakes on the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest and White Mountain Apache Reservation. Some of the best fishing in Arizona can be found in the pristine waters of the Apache Indian Reservation. Located minutes from the Hon-Dah casino along State Route 260, fishermen can find native Apache Trout in such popular destinations as Hawley Lake, A-1 Lake, and Sunrise Lake.
Fishing in the mountain lakes of the Apache Indian Reservation requires special licenses, available for sale on the reservation. For more information, visit the White Mountain Apache Tribe at www.wmatoutdoors.org.
