City anglers can get fishy without leaving town at Red Mountain Park Lake during Urban Fishing. The eight-acre oasis features two fishing docks and waters stocked with channel catfish, bluegill, hybrid sunfish, largemouth bass, carp, and white amur. Other species like tilapia -- documented by a two-pound, 13-inch record-setting catch in July 2005 -- have been introduced and stocked in the 17-foot-deep lake. If the fish aren't catching the bait, explore the 1,146-acre park, which boasts walking trails and shade-providing ramadas.
