Saguaro Lake is the fourth reservoir on the Salt River formed by the Stewart Mountain Dam in the U.S. state of Arizona. As the name implies, the shores of the lake are studded with majestic Saguaro cactus. The lake is off State Route 87, about halfway between Phoenix, Arizona and the ghost town, Sunflower. This lake is also part of the Tonto National Forest, as such the facilities located here are managed by that authority. Over 2200 fish-habitat structures were installed to enhance fishing on the lake. Waterskiing is permitted April through October (longer with wetsuits).Fish species include Rainbow Trout, Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Yellow Bass, Crappie, Sunfish, Catfish (Channel), Walleye, Tilapia, Yellow Perch and Carp.
