CHEVELON CREEK IN GILA COUNTY, ARIZONA
Chevelon flows though a very rough, difficult to access canyon that's just over ten miles Chevelon Canyon Lake. You have to hike down some very steep declines to access the canyon.
This may be Arizona's best brown trout stream. There are some rainbows but the stream has far more brown trout than rainbows. The fish can move back and forth to the depths of the lake which is a big help during the summer months when the water temperature in Chevelon Creek gets rather high. Rainbows move out of the lake to and move upstream during the Spring to spawn.
To the north (close to Winslow, Arizona) where Chevelon Creek starts there is an abundant amount of petroglyphs that have been left behind by many Native American Tribes.
