Coconino Reservoir

Tags. Please type in a Lake Name, Species of Fish etc:
  • Coconino Reservoir is a small five acre lake just south of Ashurst Lake. It offers Sunfish, rainbow trout and Bullhead. It's know to have a very rought road so try and bring a 4 wheel drive or hight clearence vehicle to get to the shore. I've just walked to this lake when I was fishing at Ashurst Lake. Theres a rock hill you can see from the south side of Ashurst Lake and just on the other side of it is Coconino Reservoir.

  • To get directions to Ashurst Lake you can use the interactive map above. Basically to get to Ashurst lake out of Phoenix you have two choices. You can take I17 all the way to Flagstaff and then go south on Lake Mary Rd about 20 right to the lake. Or you can take the 87 out of Phoenix to Lake Mary Rd. Theres also a pretty scenic drive to Ashurst Lake if you take the I17 to Camp Verde get on the 260 East. Take the 260 East to the 87 north to Lake Mary Rd. All of the Routes I listed to Ashurst Lake do not require a truck or 4 wheel drive. Then to get to Coconino Reservoir just head to the south side of Ashurst and follow the dirt road over the hill.
