Arizona CC Cragin Reservoir

“Blue Ridge” Reservoir a favorite for paddlers

Arizona -(Ammoland.com)- The long wait for the reopening of the C.C. Cragin (Blue Ridge) Reservoir is finally over.

The Arizona Game and Fish Department, in cooperation with the Coconino National Forest, has completed the first phase of a boating access improvement project, and vehicular access to the lake on Forest Road 751 is once again available.

The lake and the main road were closed in October to allow major construction to widen the existing access roads to the boat ramp and upper parking lot, install rockfall protection netting, and add several other safety features.

Popular for fishing and paddlecraft, the reservoir is located on the Mogollon Rim northeast of Clint’s Well, approximately five miles east of State Route 87 near Rock Crossing Campground.

“We anticipate boaters and anglers will really appreciate the changes made to the access roads at Blue Ridge Reservoir,” said Ron Christofferson, boating facilities program manager for the Arizona Game and Fish Department. “Arizona boaters and anglers made funding for all these improvements possible when they purchased their boats, fishing licenses, fishing equipment and fuel for their boats.”

Game and Fish will be stocking additional fish in the lake later this spring, and the normal statewide bag limit (6) and possession limit (12) for trout will be in effect throughout the summer.
