Community Fishing Program Bulletin

December 8th, 2014

Report fishing violations - 800 352-0700

Trout Returning to Lakeside (Tucson)
Trout stocking will resume this week at Lakeside Park in Tucson now that water quality issues have been resolved. Kiwanis in Tempe was stocked on November 24.

OGT Callers Making a Difference!
Following a recent stocking of trout into Silverbell Lake in Tucson, the Department received several reports of unlawful netting. An officer responded two times to separate calls, and on the second response located a person that matched the description. The officer conducted surveillance and witnessed the person committing violations. Subsequently, the person was contacted and issued a citation.

Although officers may not be readily available to respond on each call, the information is vital! Your information will be recorded into our database which will be used to look for patterns of reported violators so that we can catch the poachers & issue citations.

And another thing to keep in mind is that just because you don’t see officers at the lake, doesn’t mean they aren’t working with that information. Many times officers will catch violators after they leave the lake or even at their homes. Your calls are vital to assisting enforcement!


Trout Return to the Expansion Waters in Phoenix NEXT WEEK!
Trout will be stocked into the 7 expansion waters in Phoenix during the week of December 15-20. Those waters include Pacana Pond in Maricopa; Discovery, McQueen, and Freestone Ponds in Gilbert; Roadrunner Pond in Phoenix; Eldorado Pond in Scottsdale; and Bonsall Pond in Glendale.  

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.
