Arizona County Lakes Recently Stocked with Trout

The Arizona Fish and Game Department has been busy stocking trout in various lakes and streams around Arizona this month.  And in November, Watson Lake will get its first stocking of trout for the winter.  This is only the second time in decades that Watson Lake has had trout planted in it.

The Lower Salt River near Phoenix will also be stocked with rainbow trout in November.

Fall Trout Fishing

Now that temperatures are cooling off in many parts of the country, trout fishing should start heating up!  It's no secret that Fall is one of the best times for trout fishing activity.  Cooler surface water temps make for a more comfortable environment for trout.

If you've never trout fished before or are looking to take your kids fishing, this is the perfect opportunity.  Kids will enjoy fishing a lot more if they're actually catching fish and so taking them fishing during the fall months will better their chances.

Below are some fall trout fishing tips.
