Review: Central Park Pond #1, College Station, Texas

Rating: 3
Availability: Public Fishing Welcomed
Fishes:
  • Catfish, Channel
  • Trout, Rainbow
  • Sunfish

Where: 1000 Krenek Tap Road, College Station, Texas
Description:
Central Park Pond #1 is the pond with the Sailfish statue. It is the only pond in College Station that is stocked by Texas Parks & Wildlife.

Fished here regularly in the Winter when Trout were being stocked. Lots of people come out to fish after stock dates, and have claimed that Power Bait was successful. I tried spoons, plastics, Power Bait, stink bait, and crankbait without success. The only Rainbow Trout I caught was using a live grub. I'll continue trying to catch Trout while they are being stocked. May try for Channel Catfish when they are stocked, but I have a better pond for Catfish.

best way to fish here
  • Catfish: Stink Bait
  • Trout: Power Bait

Review: Richland College Lakes

Rating: 3
Availability: fishing welcome, no fishing off campus bridges or certain ledge areas
Fishes; Largemouth Bass, Bluegill, Drum, Carp
Where: 12800 Abrams Rd Dallas Tx
Description: I only fish for largemouth there, the biggest I've seen was super shallow and probably 2-3 lbs. I've caught a few over one and a lot under. Wacky Zoom finesse worms work great around stick ups and shaded areas. Shallow cranks and jerkbaits around the fountains and drain pipes also do well. The dam near walnut is where I've caught most of my fish.


Challenge Accepted.

Had the pleasant experience of meeting this guy today. I decided to try out these ponds but was only there about 30 minutes before this guy threatened to call the cops if I didn't leave. He was extremely rude and claimed there were signs that said it was private property but there wasn't one where I parked. In the short amount of time I had to fish I had a bite on a Yamamoto senko but that is about it.

Availability: Private Property Most land owners are nice and have no problems with you fishing behind there houses but there is one A-Hole that will call the cops on you for trespassing! Knock on doors and ask no big deal!

Fishes; LMB maybe others

Where: http://maps.google.com/maps?q=33.027258,-96.760808&num=1&t=h&sll=33.025792,-96.757021&sspn=0.007934,0.019248&hl=en&ie=UTF8&ll=33.027888,-96.760132&spn=0.003967,0.009624&z=17

Description: Great place to kill a few hours on Sundays! LMB from .5-2.5 thats just what I have had on my line. I use soft platics mostly Color-WM/RF works the best for me. The new Gulp Alive 3" minnow works the best!

Review: Pond behind LA Fitness, PLANO

Rating: 0
Availability: Not sure if fishing welcome but didn't get bothered and no signs.
Fishes; No fish at all, not even small bait fish.
Where: George Bush Highway and Coit rd.
Description: Don't think there are any fish in here. Fished for roughly 20-30 mins with a senko, jackall gantarel jr, and nightcrawler with no bites or action. Water was very clear and I couldn't spot any baitfish, sunfish, much less bass or catfish. Pond was very nice looking with clear water and tons of underwater weeds with some deep pockets.

Review: Colonial House Lake, Carrollton

Rating: 1-2
Availability: Fishing is allowed
Fishes: Sunfish, unsure if bass or catfish of good size are present
Where: Colonial House Lake, Carrollton, TX 75007
Description: Fished here for a few hours and didn't get any bites on my bass baits (mainly large swimbaits and senko). Water was very cloudy so it was hard to see any weed-lines or underwater structure. Bank access can be hard to get as the majority of the lake is surrounded by vegetation. Caught several small sunfish on nightcrawlers, biggest was about 5" or 6". Put a smaller sunfish on a hook for bait but didn't get any bites.

Review: City Lake Park in Royce City

Rating: 3 Star

Availability: Public park with a large pond, lots of cover, reeds, downed trees.

Fishes; blue gill, I heard there is cats, spotted bass, small mouth. (Havnt caught a large mouth but I heard they are in there.

Where: Here is the exact location.

Description: There is a gazebo with a extended pier that is perfect for jigging small minnow type soft plastics for the small spotted bass and blue gills. Caught 7 fish last night. The banks were decent with a crank bait and swim baits. I usually go before sun down, or early morning. I have not caught anything larger than 2 pounds yet, but something snapped my 6 pound test mono last week so I assume theres bigguns in there.
