PAYSON, Ariz. — As warmer springtime weather approaches, the Arizona Game and Fish Department (AZGFD) will begin its annual trout stockings a bit earlier in some waters near Payson on the Mogollon Rim. 

Canyon, Haigler, and Tonto creeks will begin receiving catchable-size rainbow trout in March. This will mark the first time these waters have been stocked this early in the traditional spring and summer stocking season. All other area streams will be stocked according to the standard  schedule that begins in April.  

Visit AZGFD’s website for the latest stocking schedules. These schedules are tentative and subject to change due to weather or conditions at the sites.
