JD Dam

JD Dam Lake, Perkins Tank, Elk Tank and Middle Tank are located about 20 south of Williams. Directions I have from a fishing book take me through Flagstaff then to Williams then south to the lakes.

Is there a more scenic route to these lakes. Slower driving than the interstate is ok too.

BigPoppa,

Are you kidding about the route or the scenery?

Game and Fish told me JD has little water and isn't worth fishing.

it was terribly low this spring,with a die off....on top of that a wild fire in area made J.D. a water stop for refilling the choppers dumping water on the blaze. Give it a rest and hope for a winter with snow.

Yep, Game and Fish's Fall Fishing Forecast says this about JD Dam Lake, with a rating of "Poor Fishing":

J.D. suffered a major fish kill in July. Some fish survived but fishing will be poor until we restock the lake. Remember: Regulations on J.D are flies and lures only with single barbless hooks; all fish must be immediately released. This lake is managed as a catch-and-release fishery.
