This lake is closed for the winter. 1/5/2017
Riggs Flat Lake, high atop Mt. Graham southwest of Safford, is one of the area's most important trout fisheries. It also boasts incredible scenery and the endangered Mt. Graham red squirrels that environmentalists and scientists continue to argue over. Don't expect to see many of the squirrels near the lake though. They prefer solitude.
You can pretty much expect the gates to the lake to close around late October. On the average summer, expect the stocking truck to arrive about seven times
