you must obtain a White Mountains Apache Indian

stores in the Show Low, Pinetop/Lakeside area or at the
store on the lake. Hon-Dah Convienience store at the SR
260 and SR73 also has permits. Tel. 928 369-4311. There
is a country store on the lake to gas up, get a snack or
to buy a lure that you might have forgotten. You can also
purchase a fishing permit at the general store on the lake.
