Before you head to the White Mountains region (or are you already there? ), take a look at some pictures of the lake conditions.
Fishing is fair at Show Low Lake, Fool Hollow Lake, Willow Springs Lake, and Nelson Reservoir. Silver Creek is in the catch and release season, which had a parasite outbreak in October, but fishing is now good. Patterson Ponds in St. Johns were stocked in mid-December with catchable rainbow trout.
Access to Woods Canyon Lake and Bear Canyon Lake is closed as of Jan. 5 via Forest Road 300. Access to Big Lake is closed as of Dec. 23 via roads 261 and 273. Other roads are icy and snow packed.
