Gila Trout restored in Frye Creek, AZ

With the Gila trout restoration in New Mexico being largely successful, the state of Arizona is starting to follow suit and has recently reintroduced Gila trout in Frye Creek. Frye Creek is a small stream flowing from the Penaleno Mountains of southeastern Arizona and like some many other Gila trout waters these desert natives have been absent since the introduction of non-native rainbow, brown and brook trout.

With the recent downlisting of the Gila trout and opening to fishing in New Mexico, Arizona is hoping to meet the same success and plans to open up some limited catch and release options in the future. For full details: http://sports.espn.go.com/outdoors/fishing/news/story?id=4663995
