Fishing in Tucson is provided by City of Tucson. Tucson has created an “Urban Fishing Program”. The program provides a three smaller lakes that are stocked with fish and located in the City. These local lakes are – Kennedy Lake, Lakeside Park and Silverbell Lake – and all are part of the Tucson Fishing Program. Sahuarita Lake is also located within an urban environment South of Tucson in the Rancho Sahuarita area.
Surprisingly, there are a number of other lakes to fish within a short distance of Tucson. Most are in the Coronado Forest and range in size from 7 acres to over 250 acres. These include Parker Canyon Lake, Pena Blanca Lake and Lake Arivaca. The largest is Patagonia Lake at 250 acres and 2 1/2 miles long.

A fun fact for Arizona is that it has more boats per capita than any other state. Strange but true. Even in a place where water seems to dry up before it hits the ground, Tucson and surrounding areas offer some of the best fishing locations in Southern Arizona.
