Arizona - On Fish
June 1, 2017
Warming nighttime temperatures play a big part in regulating lake water temperatures. Already in our beautiful desert impoundments, water temperatures have popped into the magical upper-60s, lower-70s range, prompting bass, shad and other fish to increase their activity levels. Before the Memorial Day weekend, Arizona Game & Fish had stocked an additional 20,000 trout and catfish into waters statewide. Through June, they'll have stocked a quarter-million more trout, catfish, bass and sunfish. Catfish are going into Community Fishing Program waters; give Mr. Whiskers a try. In desert regions, most bass are still in post-spawn.
