    The Arizona Game and Fish Department has been using a crane on a 36-foot pontoon boat to sink fish habitat — critical to anglers' fishing opportunities — into lakes along the Salt River chain in central Arizona.

    For anglers, this ongoing project will result in better fishing for generations to come.
