Man fishing on a river near Vistara at SanTan Village in Gilbert, Arizona



Fishing is a fun way to spend a leisurely afternoon.

Looking for a go-to fishing spot? The watering holes around Gilbert offers scenic views as you cast a line.

Here are a few favorites:


Tempe Town Lake welcomes more than 2.4 million people every year, making it the second-most visited attraction in Arizona. Spanning over two miles, the lake was formed by damming a section of the dry Salt River and adding water. Anglers can cast a line from the shore or an electric or human-powered boat. Fish species include rainbow trout, yellow bass, and channel catfish. The lake is also the site of more than forty events every year including Ironman Arizona and the state's largest Independence Day celebration.


Fronting N. Hayden Road in Scottsdale, Chaparral Lake spans ten acres with a maximum depth of fifteen feet. Known as a must-visit destination, it draws thousands of locals and visitors alike who come to enjoy a day of swimming, fishing, picnicking, and more. Anglers can fish from the pier or a boat, and the lake is stocked throughout the year by AZ Game & Fish. Bag limits apply, and species include trout, catfish, and sunfish.


Nestled off of Route 87, Saguaro is a long, narrow, and winding lake created by the construction of the Stewart Mountain Dam. It encompasses 1,100 acres and has a maximum depth of 116 feet. There is a fishing pier, and anglers can catch crappie, largemouth bass, and brown trout among other species. Saguaro Lake is a popular destination on weekends and holidays, and visitors can also enjoy an afternoon of swimming, boating, and water skiing.
