Goldwater Lake

Goldwater Lake was named for Morris Goldwater, a longtime mayor who served Prescott. There are two lakes here. Upper Goldwater Lake and Lower.
Upper Goldwater Lake is open to the public. This lake is maintained by the City of Prescott Parks and Recreation Department.
Park facilities include picnicking, volleyball, horseshoes, covered ramadas, playgrounds and more.
I recommend either Goldwater or Lynx, for an easy place to catch a fish. Try meal worms at Goldwater, fished with a bobber, a foot off the bottom.
