One summer favorite for high country anglers is Bear Canyon Lake in the Mogollon Rim. This deep canyon lake has decent shoreline access, but don’t expect to fish the bottom with your PowerBait.
There is a steep drop-off along most of the shoreline. There is a slight hike into this lake, which keeps most people away. There’s no store, no facilities (other than a bathroom in the parking lot), and it is only dispersed camping nearby — a good thing for minimalists.
