Nyesa and Josiah Cartwright show off their dad's catch Saturday morning at Family Fishing Day.

Dozens of Maricopans turned out early Monday morning for the annual Family Fishing Day at the Copper Sky lake. They were able to fish for free without a license, with instructions, rods and bait available. The lake was freshly stocked with rainbow trout. Corn bait seemed particularly effective. The City of Maricopa works with Arizona Game and Fish Department to offer the experience each January.
