History

In 1958, the late Roger Teglia purchased the gravel pit that was to become Paradise Park Ponds.  Rainbow trout were successfully reared there and then sold to anglers.  In 1964, the ponds and adjacent property were sold to the City of Reno; it is run by the Parks, Recreation, and Community Services Department.  The Nevada Department of Wildlife has stocked the ponds since 1965 primarily with rainbow trout.  Between 1997 and 1998, the north and south ponds were deepened and sealed, and an aeration system was installed to keep the pond oxygenated.

Pertinent Information

The Paradise Pond complex consists of two large ponds and two small ponds that accumulate about 24 surface acres.  The larger ponds are about 18 feet deep and have numerous boulder structures that enhance fish habitat.  The ponds have been stocked with rainbow and brown trout, bluegill, and channel catfish.  Bait fishing for trout with nightcrawlers or Power Bait is best, but throwing small spinners or spoons also produces fish.  On occasion, large channel catfish have been caught.  Accessible fishing piers are found at the north and south ponds.
