We have gone here for years with different management/ownership and it seem to stay the same (I know it seems impossible, but true). It took us a while but have figured (from advice) that a shinny lure will catch too many fish (it starts to...More

Great experience. We caught 10 fish in less than an hour. The cost adds up quickly($164), but we had a great time. Would definitely go again.

Others were catching lots of fish but we didn't because we had to leave after one hour. It's a pretty small pond next to the road but there isn't much traffic.The staff was very helpful in trying to assist us.

Great day. We packed a picnic and had a great day. Very helpful staff. They even clean your fish for a $1 each, way worth it!

My mom and I took my kids (6, 6, and 3) for their first fishing trip here because we didn't have poles and didn't want to buy a license for a one day event. It's a stocked pond, so there's a good probability of catching...More

If you have kids of any age this is a fantastic place to catch big rainbow trout at an incredibly cheap price. It's not so easy where you catch a fish on every cast, it takes some skill since the rental gear has tiny hooks...More

We took our two Chicago grandchildren, along with their parents, to this pond for their first Colorado fishing experience. They had a ball! Our 9-year-old granddaughter started pulling in big trout almost immediately. Her 7-year-old brother kept losing fish until he figured out his own...More
