AZ: Volunteers go fishing for trash to clean up an Arizona angling hot spot

PHOENIX — Arizona Game and Fish Department experts predict
Alamo Lake will be one of this year’s hottest fishing spots in
Arizona. The problem is, it needs to be cleaned up. The solution?
Come join volunteers and Arizona Game and Fish Department employees
to clean up the shoreline and the Alamo Wildlife Area.

The Arizona Game and Fish Department is holding its 13th annual
Alamo Lake Cleanup March 3 from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. In the past 12 years,
volunteers have picked up over 26 dump trucks full of trash around
Alamo Lake.

“Volunteers have removed everything from a kitchen sink, to an old
truck frame including the engine block,” says Alamo Lake wildlife
manager Stewart Kohnke. “This is a great opportunity to give
something back to a lake that so many local people enjoy.”

The department will provide boats and trash bags for those who do
not have them. The Alamo State Park will waive camp and launch fees
for participants staying at the Cholla Campground Group Use Area.
Registration begins at 6 p.m. on Friday, March 2 and runs through
March 3 at the group use area.
