If you are looking to reel in a great deal during these tough economic times, Arizona’s 2008 general and urban fishing licenses are both on sale for half price during November and December, said Arizona Game and Fish Department officials.
“This is a sweet deal each year following Halloween,” said Fisheries Chief Kirk Young. “With the winter trout stockings picking up steam, this is a terrific time to catch this half-price fishing deal.”
The 2008 General Fishing License (Class A) is on sale in November and December for $11.75 for residents and $35.13 for nonresidents. The 2008 Class U (urban) Fishing License is on sale for $9.25 for residents and nonresidents alike.
This week, the popular Lower Salt River below Saguaro Lake is being stocked with trout, as are Dead Horse Ranch State Park near Cottonwood, the Verde River between Camp Verde and Cottonwood, Fain and Lynx lakes near Prescott, plus Patagonia and Parker Canyon lakes in southern Arizona.
