The Boulder City Urban Pond was constructed in 2001 as a joint project between Boulder City and Nevada Department of Wildlife to provide opportunity for anglers to fish. It is located in Veterans Memorial Park.
The Boulder City Urban Pond is approximately 3 acres with a maximum depth of 15 feet. A paved trail from the parking area to the pond navigates around the entire pond. Water quality is generally good year-round and the water level is typically maintained to the rim. Moderate green algae blooms may occur seasonally, but these are usually short-lived. Rainbow trout and channel catfish are stocked, which occurs seasonally and depends on water temperature. Small spinners, Power Bait, salmon eggs, and flies are effective for trout. No overnight camping is allowed, but there are restrooms, picnic tables, and other day use facilities. There is no fee to access the park.
Biologist Forecast for 2012
Angling for stocked trout and catfish will be good throughout the year, generally for at least one week following stocking. Angling slows in late spring (April) and late fall (October) as water temperatures change during the transition in seasonal stocking from trout and catfish.
Boats and other flotation devices, including float tubes, are prohibited on the Boulder City Urban Pond.
Veterans Memorial Park is located on the south side of Boulder City on Buchanan Boulevard. The main park entrance is located on Buchanan Boulevard approximately 1 mile south of the junction of Buchanan Boulevard and Nevada Highway (US 93), or 1/3 mile south of the intersection of Buchanan Boulevard and Adams Boulevard. From the main park entrance, visitors should turn right and follow the access road to the parking area located immediately below the pond.
