Congratulations to Harold Heres, who caught this 4.44-pound, 21.75-inch rainbow trout on PowerBait at Red Mountain Lake near Mesa on the morning of Tuesday, Jan. 1. The trout was entered in the Big Fish of the Year contest.
Where are big trout near you? Phoenix, Tucson and beyond
We’re getting 2015 off right with incentive trout stockings that have just gone into many of the Community Fishing Program waters.
Which ones? The trout have been stocked into all the waters but the Phoenix/Maricopa expansion and custom waters. See the stocking schedule.
These fish are all at least 1 pound, which most being 3-5 pounds. (A few are 6-8 pounds.)
This is prime winter trout time. Grab a license and go!
