  • Rainbow trout are periodically stocked in Mingus Lake. A State of Arizona fishing license and trout stamp are required for anglers over the age of 14.

    Someone illegally stocked yellow bullhead into Mingus several years ago. These fish compete directly with the trout and keep growth rates very low. If you witness anyone, anywhere, moving fish like bass, bluegill, catfish and stocking them, please report it to our Operation Game Thief Hotline at 1-800-352-0700.
  • Between Prescott Valley and Jerome on Hwy. 89A, turn on Forest Road 104 (at Summit Picnic Site). Follow dirt road for approximately 2 miles. Watch for the lake on your right.

    Trout were last stocked the week of October 17th. The best bait is white or pink Powerbait, fished under a bobber or a spinner with a silver blade are doing well. The gate will be locked soon, with an anticipated mid-December locking. The lake is iced over according to reports so be careful if you fish there.
