    Uh, you forgot the important ones, South to North, Martinez, Moovalya, Havasu, Mohave, Mead and Powell . . .
    Torque gets you there. Horsepower gets you there in time for dinner.

        Aw, New boat you got to do Havasu and cruise under the bridge at least once you got to. I think it is a law in Arizona?

          I hate Lake Bartlett and Apache. Dreadful lakes!

          Go to lake pleasant and canyon lake. That's where all the cool peeps go.

          Just remember, stay the hell away from Bartlett and Apache.
          Also don't waste your time on Lake Powell or Mead, they are half empty anyway and completely worthless. Nothing to see but a bunch of boring rocks. I can go in my backyard and count rocks.

          In fact I wouldn't recommend Arizona as a boating destination at all. Don't waste your time around here. Just move on down the road, nothing to see.

              Well I will try out all the Valley Lakes and make my own Judgement. You said nothing about Roosevelt. That lake is a 100% full right now.

              I live in AZ and have no desire to move anywhere else So I will take what I can get.

              Thanks.

                This one made me smile because I also like to protect my favorite spots. Seriously, AZ is a great boating destination. Our weather can't be beat. I was up on a slalom ski on Presidents Day. The air temp was in the mid 70's, but water temps still in the mid 50's. Thank goodness for a drysuit. Still have not made it to Apache, but I do love Bartlett. Pleasant is too convenient for me to stay away, but that is also the reason why the rest of Phoenix is there.

                    Sarcasm is clearly not working in this thread.

                      Agreed. I was hoping that my comment about smiling and protecting favorite spots would be a clue. Those that have been on this forum for while know that Drowned Rat loves the desert lakes.

                        i love Apache the best....

                        most people with there big fancy boats stay away since it is only accessible via dirt road... so its usually nice and quiet..

                        i just got my first boat (i have been boating since a kid but i took my step into man-hood with this purchase) and i hope to do a ton of boating this summer...

                        im gonna be heading to bartlett on tuesday...

                          Went to Canyon Yesterday. Nice Lake and very scenic. Ok now the bad. Alot of floating wood in the Narrow Parts of the lake. So you have to be careful. The drive was about 45 minutes from Gilbert and the roads going in was nice.

                          We had a nice day of boating yesterday.

                            I had to smile when I read your other post, I even had a comment ready for it, but figured I should read on first.

                            I was going to tell the OP that since I do not live in AZ anymore, definately hit those lakes.

                            I actually have never been on a lake I did not like in AZ. Even the small ponds like Patagonia.

                            I don't know if I traveled more miles pulling the boat to different lakes or in the boat on all the lakes
                            I know I sure do miss it though

                              How is the Ramp conditions at Apache Lake. Is Apache Lake Bigger than Canyon?
