    Why so much effort stocking trout at desert lakes and rivers?

    Maybe I'm the only one that thinks this but it seems like the game and fish department is pushing trout fishing too much. Was just reading this article that says "According to the state Game and Fish Department (AZGF), Colorado River stakeholders have expressed interest in reducing bag limits for the region’s trout because of an increase in the fish’s popularity among Arizona and Nevada...

    Thai fishing traps

    Saw these cool fishing traps for sale in Thailand. Looks like a good diy project if you have some old nets and water bottles. Basically you cut the tops off the water bottles, glue them to each side of the trap, and leave enough net at the top to close it off and reopen it when you catch some shad. [ATTACH]

    Renting fishing gear for visiting uncles

    Hi all, I have some uncles visiting my dad, in February, and I want to set up a fishing trip for them. We need all the fishing gear but would like to rent them. Any suggestions on where to do this? We are going to go to Roosevelt Lake. Thanks!

    How to keep your catch fresh from the lake to the table

    How many freshwater anglers would flip a lid if the government tried to take away our rights to bring home fish? I know that this Hooked Az writer would drop his pole and pick up a gun in heartbeat if I was told fishing for food would be illegal. Since this is the case and it is our unhindered American right to fish and to bring it home for mounting or eating why then do so many fisherman...

    How big are the bass in Arizona

    So I just moved to Arizona and I've been living in Florida my whole life. Just trying to think about how big to go on the tackle. From what I've read, on average in AZ you get about 1-4 lb large mouths, anything bigger than that might make the news, I'm I right? No offense, I'm looking forward to fishing AZ, you have a much divers landscape than we do and I love going to the lakes here. Just...

    Video Tubing the Salt River and Fishing at the same time.

    Just fyi, if you haven't though of it, you can go to the lower Salt River and get the bus and bring your own tube and pole and fish + get drunk with the rest of the tuber. This was a few years back, I brought my own tube I picked up at Big5. If was still pretty cold in spring. [MEDIA]

    Why are the Black River Permits not 24 hours

    Why is it that you go the San Carlos res and buy a permit for the day and it expires at midnight? That sucks. That means you have to buy one for the morning you leave to. It wouldn't be a big deal if they were less than 20 dollars a day. Is this right or do I have it backwards?
