FIRE BAN INFORMATION
Effective
Tuesday, May 26, 2015 - Thursday, September 3, 2015 (Tentative)
Maricopa County's regional parks will initiate the annual fire ban. This includes banning the use of all
campfire, fire pits and charcoal grills; however, it is still acceptable to use gas/propane grills in designated areas such as the ramada areas, semi-developed and developed camping sites, and along the shoreline at Lake Pleasant Regional Park.
If the parks do not receive ample rain during the monsoon season, the Maricopa County Parks and Recreation Department
may extend the fire ban to protect the parks resources and ensure visitor safety. To learn more, click here.

The Arizona Game and Fish Commission began to stock fish in Lake Pleasant Regional Park after the building of the main dam and completion of the diversion dam. To date, Lake Pleasant is home to 12 species of fish:
  • White Bass
  • Striped Bass
  • Large Mouth Bass
  • Bluegill
  • White Crappie
  • Black Crappie
  • Bigmouth Buffalo Fish
  • Channel Catfish
  • Flathead Catfish
  • Green Sunfish
  • Redear Sunfish
  • Tilapia
Every year, Lake Pleasant Regional Park hosts several fishing tournaments. A fishing license is required and may be obtained at most sporting goods stores or through the Arizona Game and Fish department.
