Great place for the littles to enjoy learning to fish. There is a nice walking path, and this is part of a larger park that is really well kept.

Been there a few times. Have to be patient but they do bite. It's a lot of fun for the young ones. Bring a lunch and enjoy the day! Please pick up after yourselves as this is a very clean place.

The Catch-and-Release Fishing Lake in Anthem is just as titled....a nice addition to livable Anthem. Whether fishing, strolling and/or people watching, this nice park area is one of Anthem's finest amenities.

I’ve been asked this before, and I’m not sure, as we watched some people fishing, but did not fish ourselves. Check with local authorities in Anthem or AZ Game and Fish- they can tell you.
