Fishing opportunities expanding in Prescott Valley
The Arizona Game and Fish Department and the Town of Prescott Valley have teamed up to expand fishing opportunities in the community, according to a press release. Yavapai Lakes, consisting of two ponds in the Urban Forest Park, has been added to Game and Fish’s community fishing program.
The ponds are located at 8700 E. Lakeshore Dr. in Prescott Valley. Fain Lake, which Game and Fish is already stocking with rainbow trout, will begin to receive fish through the Community Fishing Program. On June 12, Game and Fish stocked 1,000 pounds of catchable catfish into Yavapai Lakes at Urban Forest, and Fain Lake. Game and Fish reminded the public that a valid license is required for those over the age of 10. A youth combo hunt/fish license for age 10 to 17 is just $5.
