Angler Report: Tempe Kiwanis Lake
Send your fishing reports and pictures to BFishing@AZGFD.gov
Robert K.: Grass carp. Was fishing Kiwanis Lake while the boat racing tournament was going on. Fishing was tough but then me and my gf noticed a large fin raise out of the water like jaws other people notice too. After 20 mins of waiting, my left rod goes screaming — I could tell it was a large fish from the hook set on 6 lb line.= After 10 mins, a bystander had a large net to help land the beast. Quick photos were taken and I let the big mama go. We always practice CPR.
