TEMPE TOWN LAKE – Bass are in post spawn, bluegill are spawning and the shad are getting ready to spawn. Anglers are catching bass close to structure such as the bridges. There are some bass on beds, but it's mostly post-spawn bass action time. Try working plastic worms or drop shots along the shade lines beneath the bridges.

Anglers are catching bass close to structure such as the bridges. Try fishing 10 to 20 yards beyond the shoreline.

Overall, trout fishing has been slow, but it's still possible to catch one or two. Try nightcrawlers.

The lake was stocked with a few thousand trout next week (March 2-9).

This is an excellent lake to learn how to bass fishing using simple rigs like plastic worms and lizards worked along the bottom. Cast out, let the plastic bait sink to the bottom, reel in any slack line to "make contact" with the bait, then lift up your rod tip (lifting the bait off the bottom), reel in a couple of times, then lower your rod tip and let the bait sink to the bottom again. The sport fish will often hit when the bait is falling back to the bottom, so if your line moves sideways, set the hook.

TEMPE TOWN LAKE – The lake is being stocked with trout (recently received some plus-size trout.) The best place for largemouth bass is in around the structure along the overpasses the the buoy lines. If you are fishing at night realize that bass naturally gravitate toward shore on their quest to nab shad that are following the zoo plankton. There are some crappie in the lake so wouldn’t hurt to try your crappie lights and see what else will show up. Yellow bass are plentiful and more pelagic. Be cognizant of the special regulations if you bring a boat.
