aka Lyman Reservoir. Lyman Lake was Arizona's first state park. The area features a number of archeological sites and petroglyphs, many of which are accessible by boat. A herd of buffalo is also found as you first drive into the park. -G.J. Sagi, from the essential travel handbook Fishing Arizona
The largest lake in the region with great amenities and no boat motor restrictions, Lyman Lake State Park attracts anglers, as well as campers and water skiers year-round.
An irrigation impoundment on the Little Colorado River, Lyman Lake consists of 1,500 surface acres situated at 5,978 feet. The lake lies entirely within Lyman Lake State Park. Water levels fluctuate, but when full, the average depth is 22 feet, with a maximum depth of 57 feet. Lyman Lake is a warm water reservoir containing largemouth bass, channel catfish, green sunfish, carp and a few walleye.
Fish for catfish, particularly at the upper end of the lake, with night crawlers or chicken livers. Try fishing for bass, walleye and sunfish along rocky or weedy areas of the lake. Catch carp with corn or dough baits. - Arizona Game and Fish
