Detecting for gold nuggets around Lynx Lake

5 posts in this topic

Hello All,

   Spent some time with my Daughter fishing Lynx Creek.  We didn't have any luck catching fish, but we wondered all around Lynx hiking and on a Boat.  Some decent looking ground around there and it was about 15 degrees cooler than the Phoenix area.  Curious if anyone has poked around the Lynx Creek area with a metal detector?  I know they have the gold panning area down around that Gulch, so you would think maybe the headwaters of at least that Gulch might contain some nuggets.

Yup..been there done that :)

 Got a 1 grammer from  a trib running into Lynx creek. 

It was right under a piece of lead bullet. 

There is a lot of trash in that area but there is gold also.

Ron Driscol talked about someone finding nugs in the tributaries running into lynx lake. Just a memory.

There are a few of us that have hunted and found gold from the lake north toward the public panning area and a few of the tributary areas. It is there if you can put up with the trash.
