AZGFD staff recently went out to Alamo Lake to conduct some sampling for a graduate project with the University of Arizona. Different methodologies of fish sampling were conducted to assess which technique was most favorable with regard to fish density and populations.

Gill nets were set in the mornings and electrofishing was conducted at night. All fish that were caught were released after weight and length were taken. From data collected, Alamo Lake seems to be a relatively healthy system with sample amounts of various species and sizes.
