CC CRAIGN / BLUE RIDGE RESERVOIR
Chevelon Canyon is the best Brown Trout fishery in the State; some argue the entire world. The lake is fed by Chevelon Creek which means the Rainbow Trout, and Brown Trout are able to reproduce naturally and are not stocked. Chevelon is 206 acres with an average depth of 35 feet with a maximum of 80 feet.
Chevelon Canyon Lake is quite remote and is a deep canyon lake that requires a relatively steep hike 3/4 of a mile to get to the waters edge from the parking area. Generally, only the most avid of anglers that are physically well-conditioned fish Chevelon Lake. However, those that do are rewarded with views of the most scenic trout lake in Arziona. It is simply gorgeous and panoramic with thick forested vegetation and trees that abut the lake. If you're seeking tranquility, this is the lake of choice.
