Community Fishing Program

Whether you’re a seasoned angler, a casual enthusiast, or just dipping your toes into the world of fishing, the Arizona Community Fishing Program has something for everyone. With a focus on providing accessible fishing experiences, this program is a collaborative effort between the Arizona Game and Fish Department and dozens of communities statewide. Currently, 53 city park lakes and ponds participate in the program, including tranquil Tucson fishing waters, ensuring ample opportunities for anglers of all levels to cast their lines and enjoy the sport.
