Community Fishing Waters

More Than 50 Waters To Fish!

We have established fishing waters in 23 Arizona communities.

Whether you are an experienced, occasional or new angler, the Arizona Community Fishing Program offers fishing opportunities that you are sure to enjoy. There are currently more than 50 city park lakes participating in the Program, a partnership between the Arizona Game and Fish Department and 23 communities across the state. Detailed maps and park-specific information on all Community Fishing waters are found in this website section. To ensure fishermen have a good chance of catching fish, plenty of ready-to-catch fish are stocked during the fall, winter and spring seasons.
