Where do you guys fish? Are there many lakes in this area? The climate in this area seems ideal for our retirement, but I need some lakes to fish close by. Also, what are your thoughts, or problems, with living so close to the border? Thanks.

There is the lake in Patagonia, as well as one west of SV--Parker Canyon Lake. However Parker Canyon is a natural mercury deposit, so I highly suggest NOT eating the fish. There is a flyfishing club in town--the San Pedro Flycasters. But no, it is a desert so there aren't lakes... I haven't been to the lake in Patagonia, but I really don't think Parker Canyon is very nice. It is also very weedy. They stock it with rainbow trout.

As for the border issue...I would search past threads here. I live about six miles north of the border, and two doors down from a pick-up area. I haven't had any problems myself, nor have any of my neighbors that I know of. It is interesting, though...

Thanks. Maybe I need to be looking farther north.

Good question, Jim Mac

Unfortunately, since relocating here about ten years ago, rarely have I found Fishing (or any water recreation) and Southern Arizona to be synonymous.

Good Luck

I went to the Arizona Fish and Game website, and it shows about 2 dozen lakes in this area. But it's hard to tell exactly how spread out the area is because of the hokey map with icons they have.

Sorry, that's about 22 more than I know of around here. Like we talked on the other forum, and the previous poster said...fishing and Arizona just don't go hand in hand to someone from Wisconsin. But, the nice thing is...what fishing we do have you can do in January, in shorts if you really want to. Maybe a longsleeved shirt, jeans and a hat. And leave the snowshovel for the neighbors back there.

"Jimmy Mac... Jimmy!
Oh, Jimmy Mac...
When are you coming back?"

Jim - just come on over to Arizona.

There's plenty of good stuff here for you to do and enjoy, usually with the SUN up there and on your face!
