Trout Unlimited teaming up with Game and Fish to improve signature Rim Country stream
Local fish lovers want to turn the East Verde River into one of the state’s great trout streams. That would be good for the fish — and great for Rim Country’s economy to boot. So now the Gila Chapter of Trout Unlimited has embarked on a fund-raising drive to help the Arizona Department of Game and Fish create a chain of trout-friendly pools along a spring-fed stream that’s already one of the most popular destinations in Rim Country for hikers, fishermen and just-general-splashers.
