I wonder why carp? To eat the grass that has grown? feed the bass? 70,000 seems like a lot for a one mile lake, doesn't it?

They keep the midges and other insects in check. I would bet a paycheck, that there are already bass, catfish, tilapia, and sunfish in the lake, just not that many.

I agree, you know some came in with the flow as did when the lake originally filled up.

Should prolly be throwing a wide wobbling crank in gold for quite a while

I'm know the lake has plenty of fish in it. All the water that backs up past the east damn is filled with fish and some big ones.

The crap are for insect control along with the trout. The city of tempe has to do the stocking of warm water fish such as bass and catfish. I spoke to the game and fish guy during the trout stocking and asked the question Why Not Bass and Catfish. He said it was a fed thing that the National wildlife services has control. But since Tempe owns the lake they can stock it with the warm water fish such as Bass and Catfish. Secondly the lake has bass and sunfish and catfish as i caught all 3 of them since it was refilled.

Tempe town lake water can give you a rash, that water still needs to be treated by the city of Tempe.
