Wenima Wildlife Area

Winema Reach is located along the Little Colorado River near Springerville, AZ. The property is owned by the AZ Game and Fish Department and designated as a Wildlife Area. The prior land manager farmed and raised cattle and had mechanically straightened the stream and removed meanders. Both of these factors negatively influenced the stream and resulted in approximately 1,000 feet of vertical cut banks and large amounts of sediment deposited into the river.
