My little brother came back from one of those urban ponds where they stocked catfish and wanted to know why they started stocking little ones only weighing 1 pound. I don't fish cats(much...) but I was wondering if there's other urban ponds that are getting a bigger stock of cats ;). I'm dropping him off on Saturday morning so help would be nice. Thanks! :D

all the ponds are stocking all the same cats for some reason, bcuz there is only 1 truck that goes around and stock the ponds, william land park is the first pond to get the stock in...well from what i know there is 1 truck only...

I have seen the stock truck unload, they use a big net place the fish into a large trash can then walk them to the water. I saw fish from 2 pounds up to 16 pound range. It could be possible that you caught something that was born in the pond. I know when catfish as small the school a lot. Gibson has some big fish it, so does mather but mather you will need a boat to get past the weeds.

I'm dropping him and his buddy off tomorrow before I go trolling for steelhead early morning and so which ponds would be better? William B. Pond, Hagan, Howe Park, or Elk Grove Park? :-/

they all have the same fish, since only 1 truck loads em up...seems to me any of em would do just fine.

I picked up my little brother this evening from the urban pond and was shocked to see how many people fish in these tiny body of water! :o Must've been close to 80 people fishin out there... How the heck do you guys even fish these things? I like my space when I fish but these urban ponds are packed! :o

These urban ponds have people yapping at each other in foul language, and most of these fishermen look like they have no idea of what they're fishing for. Who the heck brings an ocean rod for catfish or uses 50lbs test for them anyway? :o God they're weird!

Many of these guys there are fishing without license and have way too many rods in the water... :( My little brother says that's how people fish "the urban waters" but I say it's chaotic! Thank god I never fished an urban pond beside Mather!

well, good luck for them...hopefully they don't get caught
but what can we do, there are no limits for catfish in ponds(which is great, dang i love those fillets ;D)
urban pond is all basically for a take home fish, especially cat season but the rod regulation still applies to it ;)

They used to stock Gibson Ranch, so yes there are cats there. Some big ones too, but hard to catch.

fishing is much like hunting, be patient and you'll soon be rewarded ;)
