• March 3rd, TTL is currently closed because it's being filled like crazy from the Salt River. Should go back to normal soon, but as of now there is a ton of debris in the lake, it's brown, and all fishing/boating activities are shut done. So yeah, you can't fish there now.

    Town Lake every month from November until February,
    depending on water conditions. Warm temperatures do not
    allow trout stocking, but bass, catfish and sunfish may be
    caught year-round." -City of Tempe

    Tempe town lake currently running over the dam. SRP released the water from upstream – the upper Salt River and Verde River – allowing it to flow through Tempe Town Lake and into the normally dry river channel.

    Tempe Town Lake is not an Urban Lake, therefore a State License is required to fish there.
