Phoenix anglers don't need to drive far to try their luck in the water. The city of Phoenix has contracted with the Arizona Game and Fish Department to stock lakes at eight city parks:
These lakes generally are stocked with catfish in June, September and October and trout in November and December. Check out the
stocking schedule for specific dates. Please keep in mind that all
Arizona state fishing regulations apply to fishing in Phoenix city parks.
Though it doesn't offer fishing, theRio Salado Habitat Restoration Area offers small, tranquil lakes right in downtown Phoenix.
