Game and Fish releases top 5 fishing spots in Arizona for August
The Arizona Game and Fish Department listed its top five family fishing and camping spots during Arizona’s August summer earlier this week. The top spot for family outdoor fun is Big Lake, Game and Fish said in a press release. Located just east of Show Low, Big Lake is stocked with plenty of rainbow trout, along with crayfish for kids. Shore angling is still an option, but as the summer moves along, visitors may want to rent a boat because most trout will be deep. Game and Fish lists Woods Canyon Lake near Payson as the No. 2 spot for families to seek out in August. While Show Low Lake and Show Low Creek came in at No. 3. Wrapping up the top five was Fool Hollow Lake in Show Low at No. 4 and Kaibab Lake in Williams at No. 5.
