Fishing Report

Baily Pond will continue to be stocked until winter conditions will no longer allow. The sunfish have turned off  but trout fishing has been great. The recent wet weather is going to make accessing the pond a little tough, but fishing should be excellent until winter really takes hold. Salmon eggs under a bobber is hard to beat at Baily. Fly fisherman using small peacock body nymphs are still catching lots of fish. Sheep Creek Specials, Prince Nymphs, and Zug Bugs are excellent wet flies for the pond.

Pertinent Information

Baily Fishing Pond is a 1-acre pond about 15 ft deep. Water is diverted from Clear Creek, keeping the pond cool and allowing for trout fishing most of the year. There is a fishing pier that is ADA accessible and multiple flat-topped boulders along the shore from which to fish. The typical baits and lures for trout work such as Power Bait, salmon eggs, nightcrawlers, small spinners and spoons, and flies (hare’s ears, prince nymphs, and Sheep Creek specials). The park has porta potties, picnic tables with canopies, barbeque grills, and a nice trail around the pond. Note that the pond may be closed to use if the parking area becomes muddy or the pond freezes over.
