History

Fallon Naval Air Station Seabees and Churchill County Parks and Recreation Department constructed Liberty Pond in 1998.  It is considered an urban fishery for those living in Fallon.

Pertinent Information

The pond covers 1.2 surface acres and has an average depth of 7 feet.  Water is fed by an irrigation ditch and, at times, it has gone dry after the irrigation season.  An aeration system provides oxygen to increase fish survival during the summer months.  There is a fishing pier having a large well area in the center to fish.  Trout are managed for put-and-take and are stocked in the spring.  The best trout baits include Power Bait, nightcrawlers, corn, and salmon eggs.  Warmwater fish may include bluegill, largemouth bass, and channel catfish since they have been stocked on occasion.  Nightcrawlers, mealworms, small red worms, and small spoons or spinners are great for catching these species.  The park has a restroom and picnic tables.
