Return of Catfish Stocking in the Community Waters!
Get ready, because Mr. Whiskers is coming back to town! That’s right, summer is waning back, and that means the return of catfish stocking to the Community Fishing Program lakes and ponds. The first stocking will take place Thursday September 22 in our “core” waters across Phoenix and Tucson. Stockings will continue approximately every 2 weeks until early November when we switch to trout. Our “expansion” waters will get stocked with catfish during the week of October 10-14. Try fishing on the bottom using a sinker and a simple baitholder hook (size 2-6) tipped with hot dogs, worms, or stink baits for best results. Evening and night fishing works best for catfish.
