Chevelon Canyon Lake Fishing Guide

Chevelon Canyon Lake is a hike in lake on the Mogollon Rim and is known for producing big brown trout and has a two trout limit.

Chevelon Canyon Lake offers great fishing for Rainbow Trout and Brown Trout.

To access Chevelon Canyon Lake, there are two main access points at the lake. First is the dam side which we prefer using in the spring and early summer and the inlet side which better in the fall.

We highly recommend using a float tube to access the best water as shore fishing is limited.
