Bear Wallow Creek

Tags. Please type in a Lake Name, Species of Fish etc:
  • This little-known waterway on the east/central part of Arizona, is home to one of Arizona's rarest residents-the native Apache trout. In 1984 the Arizona Wilderness Act protected 11,000 acres in the area, and Bear Wallow Creek is the dominant waterway in the Bear Wallow Wilderness. Be sure to check regulations prior to leaving, as any stream, particularly those with Apache trout, are subject to change. -G.J Sagi, from the travel handbook Fishing Arizona
