Description: About Green Valley Lakes

This is a warm water fishery in the Summer. The upper lake is great in the evening for large Bluegill. The middle lake is good for carp. The lower - largest - lake is good for bass, bluegill and crappie, mostly in the early morning and late evening. Only 1.5 hour drive from Scottsdale. Trout stocking will begin in October.
