I just read on the AZGFD.com that the eagle closure is lifted.

Bald eagle breeding closure areas lifted on some Arizona lakes and rivers

PHOENIX   The Arizona Game and Fish Department and its partners are lifting some of the closures at lakes and rivers statewide that are put into place annually to help bald eagles during the breeding season.
The closures at the following four sites were removed effective March 31, 2013 because the bald eagles in these areas failed to produce young and will not breed this late in the spring:
Lake Pleasant
Verde River near Chasm Creek
Tonto Creek Inlet to Roosevelt LakeTonto Creek from Gisela to 76 Ranch

Never lived anywhere but here. I wish thou the eagles did nest. It's real amazing to see them at Bartlett. My buddy and I were their one day last year eagle swooped down  right in front of us  grabbed a fish took off to shore and ate it up. It was bad aZz. Anyways I can't wait to go back in the river arm never been back their in my boat but now got new motor it's on. Stripers better watch out heard that's the best place to find em.

I had the same thing happen at Sag one day when GnF was stocking trout. It sounded like a jet coming down right over our heads. Snatched a trout and was gone. AWESOME!
