A summary of key changes is on page two of the booklet.
January 15, 2013
The 2013 Arizona Fishing Regulations are now available at all seven Arizona Game and Fish Department offices and at Fishing License dealers throughout the state. They are also posted online at http://www.azgfd.gov/fishing.
“Arizona’s diverse fisheries offer great opportunities all year round,” said Acting Fisheries Chief Eric Swanson. “If getting outdoors, staying healthy and spending quality time with family and friends are among your 2013 resolutions, fishing is a great way to meet your goals, have fun and make memories.”
Bass, crappie and catfish are abundant in Arizona’s large lakes and reservoirs. Mountain lakes and streams will be well stocked this year with trout. Local urban lakes are regularly stocked and are a terrific option for anglers who want to stay close to home.
