  1. Are there no longer community fishing at the lake(s) by the Graham County Fair and Racing grounds in Safford? I am very new to fishing and I had been told there was community fishing there. I just took a look with Google Earth and it looks to be there to me.

    1. Hi Steve! Now right now–but I’m not sure if maybe there was one in the past. Sometimes cities maintain their own lakes without our help … maybe that’s the case in Safford?

  2. Hi, i saw the new fishing regulations but i have a question with the page 24, this one talk about pena blanca lake “Pena Blanca Lake The limit is 4 bass, minimum size 13 inches, the limit is 4 catfish in any combination. ” but the page 45 says “Pena Blanca Lake : Largemouth Bass ADEQ recommends that the public not consume this species.” so my question is what it means page 24 with bag limit?, can i consume this fish or not?

    1. Hi Louis. You can absolutely keep 4 bass as stated and it’s also your call whether you’d like to adhere to ADEQ’s suggestion on consuming the bass.

    1. Hi, Gary. Wish I could say for sure. It is scheduled to be stocked, but slight chance the weather could change things. If I find out for sure by the end of today I will let you know!

    1. Hey Gary: I have not confirmed it’s been stocked (I am not allowed to) but I’d bet it’s been stocked by now and is worth fishing this weekend…those waters are stocked by noon on Saturdays.

    1. Hi, Esteban! Unfortunately not. Repairs have been completed, but our truck came through just before repairs ended. It IS scheduled to be stocked next week, though. Those fish last week went to Pioneer Lake, by the way.

  3. Are catfish gonna be stocked in Parker Canyon this Thursday? Plus how’s the report at Parker canyon right now? What’s biting the most? What do I use? Which part should I fish? Do I need a boat or can I fish the shore?
