Montana has problems too with past mining and certain species of fish. (Bottom fish are more prone to toxins)

You can eat plenty...
1) Eat the small ones - they taste better too. (guppies in Montana - under 11 inches)
2) Cut the fat off and cook on grill or stick not a pan - Most of the toxins are in the Fat and tan stuff (see below)
3) Scrape the tan colored stuff off that follows along the spinal cord after cooking (or cut it off before)

Generally Rainbows and Brook Trout are the safest - don't know about the Apache Trout in AZ...yet
