Community Fishing Program Bulletin

October 27th, 2014 Edition

Report fishing violations - 800 352-0700

Trout stocking to begin in November

The last catfish stocking of the season will occur this week in our core waters. Trout stocking will begin the week of November 10-15 for core waters. Grab the fishing poles and pack a picnic basket - take the family to the park to make some memories! Wildlife at City Parks

We occasionally receive calls regarding injured waterfowl or turtles at Community Fishing Waters. Improperly disposed fishing line is a significant factor that often can injure wildlife that use these same waters. Please do your part to properly dispose of fishing line and hooks, and if you see an injured bird or other wildlife, it’s always best to leave the animal alone and call for help. You can call the Department’s Adobe Mountain Wildlife Center at 623-582-9806, or go to our website and find one of several licensed wildlife rehabilitators that we work with:

Did you know that AZGFD conducts FREE Sportfishing Education Clinics?

The Department has several “Open to the Public” fishing programs that have Sport Fishing Instructors available to teach youth and adults how to fish and answer your questions about fishing. The Department provides the rods, reels and bait, and a license is not required to participate in the clinics. For more information call the Education Branch at: (623) 236-7235 or (623) 236-7219.


TURN IN POACHERS! Call Operation GAME THIEF (1-800-352-0700)
You may notice some additional Law Enforcement Officers at CFP waters as we’re working 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

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.
