Francis Short Pond Report

Francis Short Pond - Flagstaff, AZ (Coconino County)

by Arizona Game & Fish Department

Frances Short Pond suffered a fish kill due to low dissolved oxygen caused by monsoonal runoff through the Pipeline fire scar last summer that flushed ash, sediment, and debris into the pond. The pond has still not recovered as spring runoff continues to pulse through the Rio de Flag. The City of Flagstaff plans to dredge Frances Short Pond out to remove debris and sediment after spring runoff has occurred. There are no plans to stock Frances Short Pond until after the City removes the debris and sediment. The Department is working with the City of Flagstaff and will assess the potential for stocking in the fall of 2023. The limit is 2 bass minimum size 13 inches, the limit is 4 channel catfish, the limit is 5 sunfish, the limit is 4 trout.
