Chevelon, Knoll, and Bear Canyon lake levels

Post by chumley » Jul 11 2007 1:57 pm

Was wondering if anybody has recently been to Chevelon, Knoll, or Bear Canyon Lake and can report on the level and clarity of the water. I see from Hoffmaster's recent photos on HAZ that Blue Ridge is down 20+ feet (my visual estimate) from spillway level and looking pretty green (brown?), but I don't see any recent photos from the other lakes.

The AZ GFD Fishing Report doesn't give lake levels for these lakes. Last summer Knoll was down 8-10 feet below the spillway, but I don't know how it is this year. Chevelon was running over the spillway this spring, so I'm guessing that it is still pretty full.

Any firsthand reports would be appreciated.

blue ridge is always green.
Knoll was clear and full (of people)
Bear Canyon has great fishing
Chevelon is a best bet, but the hike out w/ a cooler full of fish is a (insert expletive here)
