Access to popular fishing waters in the White Mountains will be closed until the Wallow fire is secured and the Forest Service clears standing burned trees adjacent to roadways and determines there are minimal public safety concerns. These areas include: Big Lake, Carnero Lake, Crescent Lake, the Greer Lakes, Hulsey Lake, Lee Valley Reservoir, Luna Lake, Nelson Reservoir, the Black River, the East and West Forks of the Black River, Sheep’s Crossing, and the Little Colorado River at Greer.

After the fire is contained, the department expects access to Carnero Lake, the Greer Lakes, Luna Lake, and Nelson Reservoir will soon be opened. However, expect these closures to be in effect for the remaining waters for the majority of the summer and into this fall, the Arizona Game and Fish Department reports.
