  1. …My brother’s been busy, have not got him to the pond yet, (this next week for sure though) but, thanks for stocking those big trout, they really tear up your gear! Hey, was wondering, saw there is only one more scheduled stocking this month, and since we missed two scheduled stockings, was curious as to whether or not those would be made up later this month? Regardless, it was great to see fish coming in all over the pond! So many happy people fishing. Thanks again!

  2. Will Luna Lake, Nelson Res. , Crescent Lake and Big Lake be stocked this fall or later ? I appreciate you stocking Big Lake with fingerlings recently. Should improve fishing next year.

  3. Any news on Francis Short Pond? We were scheduled to be stocked the last two weeks, but have not seen any indication or news. The fish from the previous stock are still kicking, got a 2 1/2 pounder on each day of successive trips. Not a lot of numbers, but, good sizes… Thanks for any news you can give!

  4. …Well, my older brother got his first fish in 45 years, a nice 2 lb plus trout, adding a smaller one later, and my younger brother, who had not fished in 3 years got fish too. Thanks to AZ Game & Fish for their part in these events!

  5. Hi AZGFD,

    Is Lake Kiwanis in Tempe stocked for trout this Thursday (today)? We’re planning to be fishing this evening or tomorrow morning, and wish to decide the gear we bring, either trout gear or catfish gear.

    Thank you very much!

  6. Has Patagonia been s5ltocked with trout. I’m down from Colorado for thanksgiving and want to get my great nieces and nephews on some trout. Thank you.

  7. Fortuna lake. Any info about trout being stocked. A few friends and myself went fishing there a couple days ago at two different times. Not one trout was brought up. And we used everything in the tackle box. Schedule dates would be nice. Thanks

    1. Hey Stephen. Fortuna was last stocked the week of Nov. 6. So maybe it was fished out by the time you went? Next stocking there will be the week of Dec. 4. Unless there’s poor water quality or something that cancels a stocking, that lake will have been stocked by the Saturday of the week it’s listed on the schedule:
