Tenkara in ARIZONA

Going fishing? Take a tenkara angler :) Or take a western fly-angler, show them tenkara fly-fishing, and brag about how you caught 5x more fish than they did (if they didn't take your tenkara rod from you that is).

Well I was shocked that I was catching blue gill in Christopher creek last week, but as far as tempe goes... I have had luck in the east end of Tempe Town lake in the reeds and shallows. I all so keep a rod in my truck and frequent the Papago ponds and the two parks near collage and curry. Any time I am out and about town and see a pond I jump out and give a few casts.
Thanks

I did not know you fish that part of Tempe Town Lake. Have had much luck at Papago. Maybe we can meet up some time. Brad

Sure no problem, anytime. Urban fishing is hit and miss, but just giving it a go is always fun.
I have never seen it posted that you can't fish the east end, don't know if it's illegal or not. Never been approached thus far.
Thanks
