I heard that road above the lake is closed. The creek is definitely damaged now and unfishable - off limits.

The lake should have some fish - I fished it a couple of years ago from the bank, mostly roll casting and managed to land a few very small gila trout. I would suggest a float tube/pontoon boat.

The water is clear and deep, not accessible much from shore...best spot is probably across the lake from the parking lot by the dam where the creek enters the lake in a miniature delta section. I caught one small fish right under the waterfall up the little creek, above the lake, in a small pool.

The road up is not that bad, ordinarily, and a 2-wheel-drive is fine if you don't get in a hurry. A very scenic, beautiful place, Frye Mesa.
