Fork Day Use Area is small and tucked into a small
canyon carved out by the South Fork of the Little Colorado
River. There are 12 sites at South Fork all within a few
feet of the river. Fishing the South Fork you will catch
rainbow, brown brook and apache trout. The day use area is in close proximity to the X Diamond
Ranch, which owns a two mile stretch of the Little Colorado
and stocks it regularly. It is not uncommon to catch a fish
over 20 inches at the X Diamond Ranch. Fishermen can ply
the waters for either a half day or full day of fishing
and you can be guaranteed not to have more than 5 anglers
per day on the water.
day use area is open all year, weather permitting, and the
roads are suitable for all vehicles. The roads are not plowed
during the winter months.
