The Arizona Game and Fish Department provides recreational angling opportunities for the public while also carefully conserving and protecting native aquatic species that occupy natural stream and river habitats around the state. AZGFD’s program can stock sportfish in 186 individual sites in selected rivers, streams, lakes, reservoirs, ponds and stock tanks in the state. Eighteen species of game fish will be stocked at different sites, in different combinations, to provide recreational opportunities for anglers.
