November fishing is excellent at Urban Program lakes with catfish, bluegill, bass and rainbow trout stockings all taking place this month.  The rainbow trout stocking season is scheduled to begin Monday, November 16 at all Urban Fishing Program waters.  Fishing should be good to excellent for anglers using scented dough baits (such as PowerBait), worms or small trout lures.  Trout stockings will continue every two weeks from November to March.  All lakes were recently stocked with bluegill and action is good for these feisty fighters.  Catfish action is fair to good after four successful fall stockings have loaded up the lakes.  Last week a Tempe angler caught a huge channel catfish from Kiwanis Lake that weighed in at 13.1 pounds and was over 30 inches long.  Trout fishing is good to excellent at Green Valley lakes in Payson.  Best action for trout is coming on PowerBait, salmon eggs, worms and small spinners.
