More about Riggs Flat Lake
Riggs Flat Lake is located at the end of Swift Trail, a road that winds along the top of the Pinaleño Mountains. It is a small picturesque lake, 11 acres in size, set in alpine forest and meadow. Its cold waters are stocked during the summer with rainbow, brown and brook trout, and anglers report that the fishing is usually good. Best baits for the rainbows are corn, cheese, garlic cheese, salmon eggs, and worms. The brown and brook trout are taken on artificial lures and flies as well.
Small boats are permitted on the lake, but most fish from the shoreline. If the big ones aren't biting, there is always plenty of scenery to enjoy.
In addition to the views of the lake and the surrounding forest, West Peak is visible from the vicinity of the lake. So are Aravaipa Valley and the Galiuro Mountains to the west if you don't mind taking a short hike to get to an overlook.
Location: Riggs Flat Lake is located in the Pinaleño Mountains 42 miles southwest of Safford.
