Carbon County Community Fishing Pond

Fishing report

  • Rating: Good
  • Conditions: The Division offered a family fishing day during the Carbon County Fair on Aug. 9. Fishing was good using nightcrawlers and chartreuse or rainbow PowerBait. According to a few anglers, garlic flavor improved the catch rate. Most anglers floated their bait just off the bottom. A few used a bobber and fished under the surface. Both methods were successful. 750 3-inch largemouth bass were stocked last week, and the pond will be restocked before Labor Day.
