Fish Pond

Fishing is Closed for the Winter.
Fishing will re-open early May, weather permitting

Main Pond

Fish are stocked between 12 and 16 inches. This size gives your young angler a real fishing experience. There is an entrance fee for ages 6 and older. Fish are measured and priced at $1.40 per inch. Check-in is required before you begin fishing.

Fishing Equipment and Services

You can bring your own fishing equipment and bait. All bait is acceptable except kernels of corn. Fishing rods are available for rent for $2.00. Worms are available for $4.50 a carton. We provide buckets and landing nets for you to use.

Extra Services: We will clean and pack your fish in ice for your trip home. Tips are appreciated!

Fish Pond
Catch and Release

Catch & Release is allowed in the Main Pond for fly fishing only, using a fly with a single barbless hook. You must be familiar with the proper way to release a fish in the water. Dragging the fish on shore and holding it for picture-taking is not permitted! The cost is $40 an hour for each flyrod.

Fishing Club

Visit us early in the 2023 season to receive your Club Card. Pay for 9 fish during the season and your 10th fish is free. (Free fish not to exceed 15 inches.)

We have great facilities for birthday parties, company picnics and special events. Call ahead to reserve a covered pavilion for your group, 303-838-5025. You are welcome to bring a propane barbeque grill to cook your catch lakeside.
