Grapevine Creek Poststocking Update-Success!

Arizona Game and Fish Native Trout and Chub Coordinator, Zach Beard, and his staff and Trout Unlimited staff completed a visual survey of the Gila Trout in Grapevine Creek on August 28.  It appears the  egg stocking there was a big success!  A total of 485 Gila Trout varying in size from about 2 – 3 inches (50-75 mm) were observed with some of the largest being closer to 4 inches.   The trout look to be in pretty good condition and have distributed themselves throughout the stream (from the start of the perennial water to the first pool directly upstream of the uppermost stocking location).
