Fishing Report: Mogollon Rim trout
Trout fishing on the Rim has been reported as good to excellent, although most of the Tonto and Coconino Forests remain closed due to extreme fire danger. If you are planning a trip into the forests, remember to check the status with USFWS or the AZGFD.
Bryce Sisson with the Tonto Creek Fish Hatchery reported that tiger trout were recently stocked into Woods Canyon and Willow Springs Lakes. If you have not caught a fierce fighting tiger trout on light fishing gear, you’re missing some great excitement, especially if the angler is less than 10 years old! Lakes on the Rim that continue to be stocked with trout include Woods Canyon, Willow Springs and Bear Canyon Lakes.
