Arizona's Bluegill Stockings Coming Week of March 26 – 31
Just in time for spring break, over 20,000 feisty, hard-biting bluegill will be stocked into all Phoenix and Tucson area Urban waters the week of March 26-31. Twice each year, the Department stocks 5- to 8-inch bluegill or redear sunfish to replenish populations of this popular sport fish and offer some great fishing for young anglers. Top bluegill baits include meal worms, worms or cheese fished under small bobbers along the shorelines. Daily bag limits for bluegill/sunfish are 10 per day at Urban Lakes or 5 per day at Urban Ponds.
