Last Trout Stocking of this winter season!
Our last trout stocking for central and southern AZ waters this season will take place on the week of March 2-7. Trout will continue to be stocked into Green Valley Lakes in Payson until early May. 

CATFISH RETURN TO PHOENIX & TUCSON ON THURSDAY MARCH 19th!https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/pswebcontent/thumbnails/illustrations/full/688_3746068.jpg
Attention all anglers – mark your calendars! The Cats are coming back. Our first stocking of the season is scheduled for Thursday March 19th. We’ll be delivering close to 15,000 pounds of hungry catfish into 21 core waters (see stocking schedule). Get your family, grab a picnic basket, and come on outside because it’s the perfect time of year to hit the lakes.

The Department finalized an inter-government agreement with City of Avondale to add Friendship Park Pond. Although tentative, we hope to begin stocking with a load of sunfish during the week of March 23-28. Avondale marks the 16th community within the program, and we now have 36 waters total. Additional waters are expected later in 2015.

 

Arizona Game and Fish Department Expo is coming March 28-29!

The Department will be hosting its annual Outdoor Expo in late March. The event is FREE and will have tons of events for the whole family to enjoy.  Last year’s Expo and Youth Day drew a total of 48,000 attendees, the highest three-day total in the event’s history. Check out the kids fishing tanks and take home a free photo, see all sorts of live wildlife, learn target archery & try other shooting sports in a safe, supervised, controlled environment on the range. Get a feel for specialty shooting disciplines like clay target, cowboy action, practical pistol, black powder, and air gun. Check out the many firearms manufacturers. Concessionaires will have food and beverages available for purchase, and many accept only cash -- ATMs will be on site. Expo hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. The Outdoor Expo is easy to find, located on Carefree Highway, about 1/2 mile west of I-17 in Phoenix.
