About Arizona’s White Mountains
Show Low, Snowflake, Pinetop, Lakeside and Taylor combine to make up an awesome outdoor recreational area in Arizona. If you like the outdoors, you will find plenty to do here from hiking, camping, fishing, hunting, cross country skiing and more.
Just over three hours from the deserts of Phoenix and Tucson, the White Mountains offer some great fishing for a variety of trout such as rainbow trout, brook trout, brown trout and cutthroat trout. Fly fishing is very popular in many of the lakes and streams in this region. Take a look at our Fishing Tips page for more fishing information.
