2022 Trout Derby
7 prizes are waiting to be claimed!
Hood Park Pond is located just south of the Snake River and upstream of the Hwy 12 Bridge (near the mouth of the Snake River). It is in an Army Corps of Engineers Park that has both day use and overnight camping.
The pond is actually 3 ponds connected together with channels. It is stocked several times each spring with 10-12 inch rainbow trout, plus some jumbo trout that are about 14-16 inches (1.5 lbs each). This pond is good for trout in early spring but it gets warm by late May or June so it becomes more of a warmwater fishing experience then.
Hood Park does not open for camping and most of the roadways and parking areas are closed until April 1 each year. However, there are parking areas and access to the pond for fishing or wildlife viewing is open for public use year round.
Two-pole fishing is allowed
Shoreline access: Good - This is in an Army Corps of Engineers campground with very good shoreline access all around the 3 ponds.
