The fall catfish stocking season wraps up the week of Oct. 27 – Nov. 1 with another 14,000 pounds of fish delivered to the 20 Urban Fishing Program waters in the Phoenix and Tucson areas.  Starting in a couple weeks, fish stocking trucks change from delivering channel catfish to rainbow trout.  Lake temperatures are within five degrees of the 65 degree target for trout.  The winter trout stocking season is scheduled to begin Thursday, November 13.  Trout ranging from 10-12 inches will be stocked at two-week intervals throughout the winter.  Over 100,000 trout from Colorado have been ordered for delivery to Urban waters during the four month stocking season.  With the colder temperatures at Payson’s Green Valley Lakes, trout stockings already started on October 17 and will continue every other week for the next seven months.  The first stocking at Green Valley included some 3-4 pound beauties.
