Your Guide to AZGFD Fish Stocking

The statewide fish stocking schedule link below includes all waters receiving catchable-size trout from Arizona Game and Fish. The dates listed on the trout stocking schedule represent the Monday of the week the stocking will occur. Stockings can take place any day throughout that week. These schedules are tentative and subject to change due to weather or conditions at the sites.

statewide and community lakes fish stocking

Trout produced and stocked by the Arizona Game & Fish Department are significantly below the state standard for mercury based on testing by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. There are no restrictions on the number of meals that can be consumed.

fish stocking schedules

Stockings in Community Fishing Program waters will occur randomly Monday through Saturday during the week indicated. The fish species stocked is identified as C=Catfish, S=Sunfish or T=Trout. This schedule will only change if fish delivery problems occur or conditions at an individual lake are unsuitable for stocking. Due to extreme heat conditions every summer, there are no fish stockings to Community lakes and ponds between June 25 and September 15.
