Catfish return to Phoenix/Tucson March 19

Mark your calendars! The cats are coming back. Our first stocking of the season is scheduled for Thursday, March 19.

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.

Last Trout Stocking of this winter season

Our last trout stocking for central and southern waters this season is taking place March 2-7. Trout will continue to be stocked into Green Valley Lakes in Payson until early May.

Welcome Avondale’s Friendship Park to the program

The Department finalized an inter-government agreement with City of Avondale to add Friendship Park Pond.

We hope to begin stocking with a load of sunfish during the week of March 23-28. (This is tentative.)

Avondale is 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 in late March

The Department will be hosting its annual Outdoor Expo, Saturday and Sunday, March 28-29

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 and 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, or see our new side-by-side OHV track!

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.
