Urban fishing sign at Chapparal ParkGrab your pole and some bait.  You might catch a keeper on this date and maybe a fish, too!  The city of Phoenix stocks several lakes with trout, catfish, and sunfish.  You can purchase a license  and enjoy fishing all year.  Bring your own tackle.

A goose at Chapparal ParkWe fished at Chapparal Park, but there are 16 stocked lakes in the Phoenix Metro area.  For a map to all the lakes and the rules and regulations, visit the AZ Fish and Game Department website.  You can buy an online license while you are there.  Licenses are also available for in person purchase from most license dealers.  This includes most Walmarts, many sporting goods stores, and some grocery stores.  A community fishing license cost $24.
