STREAMS, CREEKS, RESERVOIRS
AND RIVERS IN GILA COUNTY, ARIZONA
In addition to its many lakes, there are Dozens of streams, creeks, rivers and reservoirs flowing through, around, and in Arizona's Gila County. They are the very lifeblood of our state. Some of the larger Rivers provide us with power, and with water for farming and recreation.
Many of the larger rivers are dammed to create impoundments that protect us from floods and droughts, and those impoundments create some of our state’s most popular places to play. These bodies of water themselves are great places to have fun, providing fishing, boating, tubing, and swimming.
Many of these gorgeous natural backdrops provide habitas for many species of fish, birds and animals, making them great places for photographers, bird watchers and wildlife viewing.
