20,000 Sunfish Find Homes in Urban Lakes in Arizona
More than 20,000 feisty, hard biting sunfish were successfully stocked into all Phoenix and Tucson area Urban waters on either March 23 or 29.
Twice each year, the department stocks 5- to 8-inch bluegill and redear sunfish to replenish populations of these popular sport fish and offer some great fishing for young anglers.
Fishing is excellent for anglers using meal worms, worms, or corn 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.
