Blue Ridge Reservoir looks more like a canyon-bound river than a lake. Nestled between forested canyon walls it provides picturesque water recreation in a secluded, wooded setting. It is an excellent place to boat fish when high winds make other area lakes too rough for access.
Fishing is a popular activity here, rainbow trout are stocked by the Arizona Game and Fish Department during summer months. Because of the steep terrain, there is no shore fishing at Blue Ridge Reservoir.
Blue Ridge Reservoir is also a popular spot to kayak or canoe.
