from Peter Unmack:

Last week a class I TA was out helping Arizona Game Fish undertake their
annual fisheries survey of Tempe Town Lake, a relatively new (4 year old)
lake in downtown Tempe. The lake is largely full of introduced sport fish,
but much to our surprise we turned up a magnificent 22 inch female razorback
sucker. No one is quite sure exactly where it came from, but they have been
stocked in several places that might have potential hydrologic connections
to the lake. Here are some pics of the fish.
