Picacho Reservoir - Pinal County

         Being the only signifcant body of water for many a mile, this reservoir attracts a good variety of species that may be difficult to find elsewhere in the county. The water level varies considerably and the ponds are sometimes empty after prolonged drought. With even a little water present, waterfowl and waders can be found here. The dykes around the perimeter of the pond are usually drivable, but are subject to severe erosion and it may be better to walk. About a third of the way north along the west side, a tract leads into the reservoir. Walking this may give you good views of the pond and its denizens.
