    You do know thats been made a kids only pond right? Not sure how old you are , but unless they have opened it, or changed regs , it was 16 and under.

    Took my son down there once last year after stocking.
    Not a nibble. And the water looked awful. It probably doesnt always look like that but on that day, wow!

    use a small bobber (about size of a quarter or less - so no drag), about 12-18" of leader off the bobber, small hooks, and Pautzke red eggs - fish down by where the water drains out of the pond. stay on the side nearest the path that goes up across to the ball fields. cast out about 8-10 ft from shore.

    we limited in 30 min. - BUT, who's to say that wasn't a day or so after they stocked it?

    most were all in the 8-9" range, but the one was about 14".

    another 'close' option is Trillium - if you get up there right after the ice-off, the fish are VERY hungry, and there are normally lots of left over brooders patrolling the edges, where the ice has melted away.

    you might have to snow-shoe or ATV in, but it can be worth it, too.

    Benson is fun, but gets fished out pretty fast.

    Blue Lake out in troutdale is pretty decent at times, again - before everyone and their bro-and-sis start having their company picnics. Get out there like this month and early march and you have the lake to yourself. fish down around the fishing doc, and if you have some, throw some jigs around the lilly-pads. there are some DECENT sized largemouth bass in there. Also around the fishing doc, with smaller jigs or bits of worm, you can bring home BUCKETS of blue gill and perch.

    yeah, you really want to try it BEFORE the summer. also, try the ponds over on Glisan. there are two of them, right down the road from the dog track, on the north side of Glisan. again, get to those early in the year - before all the low-lifes get in there. I think they are called the Salish ponds?

    ??? when did they do that? you tell I haven't been out fishing lately

    seems like my nephew was telling me that he fished there last fall. I'll have to ask him about that.
