Tempe Town Lake is a reservoir that occupies a portion of the currently dry riverbed of the Salt River as it passes through the city of Tempe, Arizona just north of Tempe Butte.  Fishing is only one of many activities that takes place on its shores. The lake's unique environment makes it an attractive place for running, rowing, sailing, walking, rollerblading and bicycling. Ford Ironman Arizona kicks off here annually with a single-loop swim.

Arizona Game and Fish will attempt to stock trout in Tempe 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.
