Enjoy the serenity of being on the water, get close to birds and animals, watch the fish below you and generally enjoy the great weather and natural surroundings!


How often do you get to try your hand at shooting a bow & arrow.  Arizona Game and Fish will provide everything you need including bows for all age levels, arrows, targets and great instruction. 

Fishing Clinic
Enjoy the opportunity to “wet a line” at the Tres Rios Nature and Earth Festival, and learn about fishing from Arizona Game and Fish Department Fisheries staff. Head to our fishing area where instructors will set you up and get you fishing as a first experience or a repeat of a familiar one! No license required for this event!
