Winter stockings of rainbow trout are just getting started at central waters including Lower Salt River and Saguaro Lake. November 22 was the annual Get Out for Trout event at Tempe Town Lake—the first of five planned stockings through March. Trout stockings are going well at Dead Horse Lakes, Beaver Creek and the Verde River below Clarkdale.
