Community Fishing Program Bulletin

January 5th, 2015

Report fishing violations - 800 352-0700

2015 Marks the 30th Anniversary of the Community Fishing Program!
We are celebrating our 30th birthday this year. What started as a comparatively small program in 1985 has blossomed into a program now spanning 15 communities and 35 waters across the state, with plans to grow even more. We would love to see more families with children in more cities getting engaged in fishing. Spread the word to someone you know and take them fishing. This is your Community Fishing Program, serving your community.

Creel Survey of all CFP Waters in 2015!
You may see a few more Department staff working the waters and asking questions of anglers. We will be conducting a program-wide creel survey of all CFP waters starting in January and ending in December 2015. If you are contacted by one of our staff, please consider answering a few questions as this is what we use to determine catch-rates, satisfaction, and many other important pieces of information.

Incentive trout coming Jan 5-10!
We are planning to start 2015 with a big bang! The upcoming stocking of trout will be much heavier than normal, which means more fish than usual, which means you should grab your fishing gear and the family, and catch yourself a memory.

Bonus stocking of trout into expansion waters January 26-31
We’re still working with our vendors to ring in the new year in our newest waters with a bonus stocking of trout in January. This would be an off-cycle stocking, but we intend to make it a memorable one. Stay tuned for further information!!

TURN IN POACHERS! Call Operation GAME THIEF (1-800-352-0700)
We’re working hard to improve compliance at CFP Waters. Please help us by reporting known or suspected violations. Although the Department may not be able to send an officer to each reported violation, simply reporting the incident to the Department helps establish where and when we have poaching problems. Every call is logged into a database and will be used to direct enforcement activities on your Community Fishing Waters. Do your part to report people that are stealing fish from you!

Remember the Web for stocking schedules, the Fish&Boat Arizona webmap, outdoor events calendar, and other great fishing and outdoor information. Also check out the web for Weekly Fishing Reports, to submit your fishing photos or to send us your latest fishing report. Talk with us on our Facebook page or get social with us on Twitter@AZGFD.
