Historic Trout Stockings

I've found some info for the White Mountains that's been dedicated toward how invasive the other species of trout are. I've been trying to find the same kind of stocking numbers and streams but for Tonto forest.

Is this information available? Maybe it doesn't get as much research as trout weren't run out of town?

I don't know if this is exactly what you're looking for, but I'm currently skimming through a US Fish and Wildlife/AZ Game and Fish Study from 2011 that includes, among other things, historic trout stockings of some of the Rim creeks in Tonto NF and other parts of the Salt River Watershed.

I was especially surprised to learn that COHO SALMON were stocked in Apache, Canyon, and Saguaro Lakes in the mid 1970s!?!?!?! I wonder if any of the old timers know the story behind that?

Anyway, I just did a Google search for "Tonto National Forest Historic Fish Stockings" and this study was on the second page as a PDF entitled "Salt River Watershed".
