Community fishing update: Tempe Kiwanis gets 1,000-pound trout bonus

Tempe’s Kiwanis Lake

There are lots of solid options this week when it comes to the Community Fishing Program. But pick-of-the-week winner, by a fish head, is Tempe’s Kiwanis Lake.

Last week, the 10-acre Green Valley lake in Payson was not stocked as scheduled, nor was Alvord Lake in Phoenix, all due to water quality issues.

That said, those fish went to Pioneer Lake in Peoria, and especially to Kiwanis Lake in Tempe — 1,000 pounds of beautiful rainbow trout!

Also, this week we’re stocking our “expansion” ponds — Discovery, McQueen and Freestone in Gilbert; Pacana in Maricopa; Roadrunner in Phoenix; Eldorado in Scottsdale; Bonsall in Glendale.

Enjoy some great winter trout fishing and be sure to check out our Community Fishing Program page on http://www.azgfd.gov for all the information you need to “Fish AZ” at a community near you. Bring some neighborhood friends, round up any family, and bond over some quiet fishing memories.

Need a license? Glad you asked. Buying a license helps conserve wildlife and recreational opportunities for future generations.
