Fish Hook Pond

This small pond, found along the railroad tracks west of Fishhook Park (east of Burbank) is formed by seepage from Ice Harbor Dam reservoir. It is open year-round but warms early so provides better fishing in early spring. Fishing is from the bank only; fishing from floating devices is prohibited. Fish Hook Pond is under statewide general rules of no minimum size and a five trout daily limit.

Fishhook Park, a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Park with day use and overnight camping is located about a 1/4 mile to the east of this pond.

Two-pole fishing is NOT allowed

Shoreline access: Good - Park in gravel parking lot outside the entrance to Fish Hook Park and use trail that is east of the railroad tracks to walk to the pond (~0.7 miles). You should not enter the park or cross the railroad tracks to access the pond.

Fishing prospects calendar

Rainbow trout

Fishing success for Rainbow Trout is generally best in the spring when thousands of fish are stocked statewide, but they can be caught year-round in most waters with a little patience and persistence. Success remains high into June and gradually declines as water temperatures increase and fish move offshore to stay cool. Fish that escaped the spring harvest return to the nearshore areas in the fall as waters cool off. Some waters may also be stocked again in the fall further boosting catch rates.
