    I used to fish that pond back in the late 80's & early 90's before it was developed into a housing community. We killed the bass float tubing it with live minnows under a slip bobber. And yes, I know exactly where the grinding holes are there. I stood on that rock and made many a cast back in the day. I caught and released a 10 lb largemouth on a crawdad colored floating crankbait on the south shore of that pond. Those were good times. We used to drive in behind the firestation. We got drunk onetime and swam that pond when it was low at the end of the summer. We got something like 60 lures from all the structure in the pond.

    I just looked it up on google earth. All the houses have ruined that place. It used to be so isolated. Thanks for taking me back to memory lane.

    I had a friend that lived right there 30 years ago. We would go into the park to escape the parents. Back then it really wan't a park like it is now. We would explore down there where all the indian holes are. Found some old stuff like arrowheads too. Haven't been back to that park in eons. From 87 to 92 I worked at the corner of douglass and rocky ridge while I was going to college. Done a lot of stupid stuff in Roseville back before I knew any better.

    That area is prime spawning grounds. I think the most damage happens when people approach from the North side and head out to the chute in the middle. "Mindful" wading would be great. Think of it as a walking meditation, lol.

Neat to see and not very well known. I doubt you can get access now. I tried to get my float tube in about 5 years ago and one of the house owners started yelling at me saying it was his lake and was going to call the cops on me. I told the ******* that I had been fishing this pond before he was even born. The cops came and we had a nice chat. He understood and let me fish since it was not posted. I'm sure it is now.
    I FISH, THEREFORE I CUSS AND LIE!

I walk the area most days this past year. I think about how I should have stayed off these areas now. I realize that we fly guys are more aped to do this stomping! Hopefully the water flows will stay the same or a little higher. The stench is a bit ruff this week.

    Compare it to the rocks around it - I believe him. Honestly though, who cares about the length/weight? It’s a nice fish.

    Re: Steelhead returns on the American

    I fished on Christmas Eve for a good 4 hours in the morning. Caught two really nice chromed out half-pounders. Both came on drift gear.

    No photos...just caught, admired, and quickly released. I'm hoping for an adult this upcoming weekend. Tight lines out there!
