KMZs and other files showing the distribution of wild trout in AZ are available from the download system.

Arizona is a largely arid state with relatively limited trout habitat.  However, wherever the elevation climbs around 5,000 feet or higher, there’s a shot at cold water habitat that can support wild trout.


Source:  Google Earth image with data provided by AZ Dept. of Environmental Quality via US EPA WATERS database (turquoise), TU CSI (basins), and US Fish and Wildlife Service (magenta).

We have just begun coverage of the western US.  Already, AZ is receiving substantial coverage.

In the image above, turquoise lines mark stream segments designated as cold water habitat by the AZ DEQ.   It, roughly speaking, defines the areas where it is possible to locate wild trout.  Cold water habitat within Indian Reservations is NOT coded in this file, so a subtantial amount of trout habitat is missing here.

The Magenta streams show the range of Apache Trout, as do the basins. These do show streams on indian land. Fishing on reservations is regulated by each tribe.  You do not need an AZ license to fish on a reservation, but you will need a tribal permit, and many areas are closed to angling. Generally speaking Apache Trout not found on Indian reservations can be legally caught.

Note that it is not legal to fish for wild Gila Trout within the State of AZ (it is, in a few streams, in NM).  Keep in mind that cold water habitat which doesn’t hold natives is likely to hold “exotics” like brook, rainbow, and brown trout. 

All of these datasets are currently available for download.  Check out the “Natives” page of the downloads tab, and the Arizona category in the “Streams” section of the “download” page.  We’ll be adding more content to Arizona as we find the time. 

If you’d like more information about Arizona, please register and post a comment.  The areas which get the most interest from our users tend to receive the highest priority when we decide what to do next.  Registering will also put you on our email list, and updates on what’s new 4-6 times a year. We share our list with no one else.

    First of all I want to say great blog! I needed a fast question that I’d love to ask should you not mind.
    I used to be interested to determine the way you center yourself
    and clear your feelings before writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my thoughts to get my thoughts out there.
    I truly do enjoy writing but it really just looks like the 1st ten to fifteen minutes
    are often lost simply just figuring out where to start.
    Any ideas or tips? Kudos!

    What’s up?

    I found this article very interesting…please read!

    Do you remember the blockbuster hit film The Matrix that was released in 1999? You may not know this, but it has deep spiritual implications concerning the times we are living in and Bible prophecy.

    It tells a story of how these “agents” are trying to turn us into machines. We are closer then ever before for this to become a reality when they cause us to receive an implantable microchip in our body during a time when physical money will be no more.

    You may have seen on NBC news concerning the implantable RFID microchip that some people are getting put in their hand to make purchases, but did you know this microchip matches perfectly with prophecy in the Bible?

    “He (the false prophet who deceives many by his miracles) causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name…

    You also may have heard of the legendary number “666” that people have been speculating for possibly thousands of years on what it actually means. This article shares something I haven’t seen before, and I don’t think there could be any better explanation for what it means to calculate 666. This is no hoax. Very fascinating stuff!

    …Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666″ (Revelation 13:16-18 NKJV).

    To see all the details showing why the Bible foretold of all these things, check out this article!


    GOD is sending out His end time warning:

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    In the Islamic religion they have man called the Mahdi who is known as their messiah of whom they are waiting to take the stage. There are many testimonies from people online who believe this man will be Barack Obama who is to be the biblical Antichrist based off dreams they have received. I myself have had strange dreams about him like no other person. So much so that I decided to share this information.

    He came on stage claiming to be a Christian with no affiliation to the Muslim faith…

    “In our lives, Michelle and I have been strengthened by our Christian faith. But there have been times where my faith has been questioned — by people who don’t know me — or they’ve said that I adhere to a different religion, as if that were somehow a bad thing,” – Barack Obama

    …but was later revealed by his own family members that he indeed is a devout Muslim.

    So what’s in the name? The meaning of someones name can say a lot about a person. God throughout history has given names to people that have a specific meaning tied to their lives. How about the name Barack Obama? Let us take a look at what may be hiding beneath the surface…

    “And He (Jesus) said to them (His disciples), ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven'” (Luke 10:18).

    In the Hebrew language we can uncover the meaning behind the name Barack Obama.

    Barack, also transliterated as Baraq, in Hebrew is: lightning

    baraq – Biblical definition:

    From Strongs H1299; lightning; by analogy a gleam; concretely a flashing sword: – bright, glitter (-ing, sword), lightning. (Strongs Hebrew word H1300 baraq baw-rawk’)

    Barak ‘O’bamah, The use of bamah is used to refer to the “heights” of Heaven.

    bamah – Biblical definition:

    From an unused root (meaning to be high); an elevation: – height, high place, wave. (Strongs Hebrew word H1116 bamah baw-maw’)

    The day following the election of Barack Obama (11/04/08), the winning pick 3 lotto numbers in Illinois (Obama’s home state) for 11/5/08 were 666.

    Obama was a U.S. senator for Illinois, and his zip code was 60606.

    Seek Jesus while He may be found…repent, confess and forsake your sins and trust in the savior! Jesus says we must be born again by His Holy Spirit to enter the kingdom of God…God bless!
