Bag a Bass at Kaibab Lake
Plunging to an average depth of 37 feet, Kaibab is the deepest, coolest lake in the Williams area, and consequently flush with fish. During summer,
the reservoir is regularly stocked with trout that add to the sunfish, catfish and largemouth bass population. The lake’s renovated, family-friendly campground features new campsites, an improved access road, ranger-facilitated nature programs and expanded day-use parking for anglers.
