Lions Park Pond

This is a small pond along Garrison Creek in Lions Park in the town of College Place. It is open year a juvenile only fishing water. It has become very shallow and WDFW is working with the city, the Lions Club and several other organizations to develop a partnership and plan to modify and restore this lake to improve fishing opportunities for kids. It is stocked several times each spring with rainbow trout, including a few "jumbo" trout of about 1.5 pounds each. Fish stocking may have to be terminated if the pond is not restored soon because it has little carrying capacity to hold stocked fish now.

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.
