History

Liberty Pond was constructed by Fallon Naval Air Station Seabees and Churchill County Parks Department in 1998. The stocking of hatchery trout in the spring and fall provides anglers the opportunity to catch fish within Fallon city limits.

Pertinent Information

The pond covers 1.2 acres to an average depth of 7 ft. The pond has an aeration system, providing oxygen to increase fish survival during the summer months. A handicap accessible pier is available with a fishing well in the center. Trout are stocked annually, but few carryover from one year to the next. Bluegill, largemouth bass, and channel catfish have been stocked on occasion. The recent Mail-in Angler Questionnaire found anglers averaged 1.7 fish per day. Try Power Bait, worms, corn, and salmon eggs for the best results.

Stocking

Liberty Pond is stocked monthly with trout beginning in March and continuing through May. Stocking resumes in October through November. A minimum of 4,000 trout are stocked in the spring and 2,000 in the fall. Channel catfish will be stocked in early summer if available.

Regulations

Fishing is allowed during park hours, sunrise to sunset, and the daily and possession limit is 3 game fish. No boating, wading, or swimming is allowed.
