The cooler weather signals the time for fall stockings of sunfish. These feisty 5-8 inch hybrid sunfish will be stocked the week of October 20-25 into all 20 Phoenix and Tucson area Urban Fishing Program lakes and ponds. A truckload of over 11,000 fish will be delivered from Arkansas, with each lake receiving about 80-100 fish per surface acre. This will also be the first sunfish delivery for the newest Urban lake, Veterans Oasis Lake in Chandler. Sunfish are fun to catch for all ages and will bite all day long. Try using small pieces of worms or mealworms on small hooks fished under a bobber. Daily bag limits for sunfish are 10 fish per person at Urban Lakes and 5 fish per day at Urban Ponds.
