October 6th, 2009

The fall fish stocking season began September 23 with a delivery of 1.5-2 pound channel catfish at all 20 Urban Fishing Program waters in the greater Phoenix and Tucson areas.  The fall season includes four deliveries of catfish, 14,000 pounds per load, delivered every two weeks through early November.  Catchable size bluegills are delivered once in the fall.  A truckload of 11,000 bluegill will be delivered from Arkansas on the week of October 26-31.  Each urban lake will receive from 80-100 fish per surface acre.  Bluegills are fun to catch for all ages and will bite all day long.  Daily bag limits for sunfish (bluegill, redear sunfish and hybrid sunfish) are 10 fish per person at Urban Lakes and 5 fish per day at Urban Ponds.
