Driving from Point of Rocks
Turn left out of Point of Rocks campground. Go 0.2 mile. Enter Watson Lake Park at the traffic circle (the park is on your left).
Watson Lake is one of two reservoirs at the Granite Dells, outside of Prescott, Arizona, that was formed in the early 1900s when the Chino Valley Irrigation District built a dam on Granite Creek. The City of Prescott bought the reservoir and surrounding land in 1997 to preserve it as recreational land. Local rockclimbers use the granite cliffs above and adjacent to the lake for top-roping and lead climbing. The lake is also the home of TriCity Prep Rowing Crew, a local high school team and only rowing team in Northern Arizona. Surface area 70 acres (28 ha) Average depth 50 ft (15 m) Surface elevation 5,100 ft (1,600 m)

Fish Cleaning Stations
Rainbow trout, largemouth bass, sunfish, channel catfish, crayfish, and crappie. Fishing Updates: Trout were stocked the week February 1st. People were catching trout off the boat dock on Sunday which is the only report I have heard of successful trips for the last several weeks. The warm temps have stimulated the fish and the fisherman to get out and try their luck. In addition to all of these fish being stocked, look for large holdover trout from previous stockings. Bring night crawlers if your other baits are not working. Stocking Schedule; https://www.azgfd.com/fishing/stockschedule/
BAG LIMITS: Trout: 6 Bass: 6 Catfish: 10 Crappie: Unlimited Sunfish, Carp and Bullheads: Unlimited
