The Autumn Equinox, or the first day of fall in the northern hemisphere, is Saturday, Sept. 22, and 100-plus degree air temperatures are still predicted in the desert regions for another week. Anglers can enjoy cool, high country spots such as Kinnikinick Lake southeast of Flagstaff, where on September 13 AZGFD stocked about 2,700 nice-sized brown trout. 

See this week’s stockings below, or their winter trout stocking schedule located here: 

If you decide to head to Kinnikinick this fall, watch this video for some tips that might help you catch more fish: 

If you haven’t heard, channel catfish return next week to Community Fishing Program waters. See the fall/winter Community stocking schedule.
