from the current fishing regs:
No powerboats allowed on:
Frye Mesa Reservoir
Rose Canyon Lake
Snow Flat Lake
(AGFD R12-4-517 (A)(B)(C))
This list was effective Feb. 2, 2008

Interesting words: powerboats ... that is different than earlier.

From what I have seen of Frye Mesa Reservoir, having been there once, a floattube seems fairly useless.

Legal or not, I don't think you need one, as it is a small impoundment.

Definitely illegal at Rose Canyon Lake. I do a lot of rollcasting up there, my skills have improved significantly over this winter.

I think a float tube would be great and needed at this pond. Lots of brushy shoreline all the way around. Ive never heard of them being illegal. The number of inner tubers, rubber rafters, cliff jumpers in the summer that have never been run off makes me think there is no ban on float tubes. But I dunno!

Float tubes

Yes you may use your float tubes, no power boats means nothing with a motor- including electric. They were an asset to those that fished last week, unless you can cast 200 yds in the wind, there is little open shoreline on the lake.

Yesterday at the International Sportsmans Expo (big name for a sad little show), I was challenged by Rory @ the AZ Fish & Game booth to get wqhat he called the "Mt. Graham Grand Slam": land a Gila trout, Apache trout, Rainbow trout, Brown torut and a Brookie. Photos (or a witness) are required for "official" recognition. Okay, not really. I'll take your word for it.
Of course, this is not any kind of official challenge, just Rory encouraging us fly fishers to go out and get a Gila Trout after all the trouble they went through to save the ones from N.M. by bringing them here.

As far as a "challenge" goes, it is a fair bet that I could not recognize all of them, much less land them, but why not? I'm adding the M.G.G.S. Challenge to my bucket list. But I won't be going up there this weekend!

Anyone else up for the challenge?
