November 12th, 2008

We have some impressive entries so far in the Urban Fishing Program 2008 Big Fish-of-the-Year contest.

  • Channel catfish – Topping the list is a 10.2 pound channel catfish caught by Shay Denniston from Lakeside Lake in Tucson.
  • Rainbow trout – A 5.25 pound incentive stocked rainbow trout was caught from Water Ranch Lake in January by Tony Morello.
  • Catch-and-release: Louis Hoeniger has been busy with three catch and release records all from Papago Ponds: a 25-inch catfish, 18-inch largemouth bass and an 8-inch bluegill.

With only two months to go, there are plenty of chances to report your big fish catches in either of two categories; kept or released.  Application forms and instructions for the contest are in the current Urban Fishing Program brochure or Arizona Fishing Regulation booklet.  Updates on the current leaders can be checked out on our Web site at www.azgfd.gov/fishing and click on “Big Fish-of-the-Year” link.  Each year’s winners receive a certificate, hat and other gifts.
