Fishing

 

NOTICE:  Due to construction, Lower Legion Lake and the dam of upper Legion Lake are closed to fishermen until further notice.  Do not enter the construction zone.

Clark's Pond is again open for fishing.  This pond was restocked with fingerling bass, bream, and channel catfish in 2017, and was closed to fishing until 1 June 2018.  The bass are small in size, so we encourage anglers to return any bass caught in Clark's pond this year.

Ponds located on the golf courses (Golf Course Ponds 1, 2, 3, and Catfish) are available for night-time fishing when the golf course is closed to golfers.  Golf course ponds 1 & 2 are also open for day-time fishing, but anglers may only fish from the dams and north shoreline of these two ponds.  Vehicles shall not be driven on the golf course.  You must walk to these ponds.
