Tempe Town Lake Project Update
January 1, 2016
Recently a story surfaced in the local news that the Department had lifted all fishing regulations at Tempe Town Lake and that anglers were free to take whatever they wanted. We want to ensure anglers have facts:
• First, the Department has agreed to cease all fish stockings in Tempe Town Lake until the project has been completed, and the lake has been refilled.
• Second, the Department has not lifted all fishing regulations for Tempe Town Lake, but we are evaluating options that could include a proposed rule change. We will have more discussions with the City of Tempe to determine what can be done so that anglers can maximize harvest of sportfish prior to the lake drawdown.
We will provide further guidance to anglers in this bulletin once that has been decided.
