Cold Creek Pond

Near Indian Springs, the town of Cold Creek is located north of Mount Charleston in Clark County at an elevation of 6,500 feet. The town is named for the creek that feeds three small ponds. Historically, Cold Creek was home to a sawmill in the 1800s, a dude ranch in the 1930s, and a working horse ranch in the 1940s. Today the town is still known for its wild horse population. After the close of the horse ranch, Cold Creek was managed by the BLM and eventually by the U.S. Forest Service.

Pertinent Information

There are three ponds fed by Cold Creek. The lowermost pond is the largest and is stocked with trout. The pond is about an acre and has a maximum depth of 8 feet. Small spinners, Power Bait, salmon eggs, and flies are effective for rainbow trout. The entire shoreline of the pond has clear access, making it easy for flycasting without interference on the back cast.
