Rainbow trout are periodically stocked in Mingus Lake. A State of Arizona fishing license and trout stamp are required for anglers over the age of 14.
Someone illegally stocked yellow bullhead into Mingus several years ago. These fish compete directly with the trout and keep growth rates very low. If you witness anyone, anywhere, moving fish like bass, bluegill, catfish and stocking them, please report it to our Operation Game Thief Hotline at 1-800-352-0700.
