Davis Creek Pond

Davis Creek Park Pond was originally used by the Winter’s Ranch to harvest ice for use in summer. It now sits within the Davis Creek Regional Park, run by the Washoe County Regional Parks and Open Space. Nevada Department of Wildlife first stocked largemouth bass in the early 1980’s, but trout have been stocked continuously since 1991.

Fishing Report

Fishing has been good at Davis Pond. Bait fisherman using powerbait off the bottom or salmon eggs under a bobber are excellent techniques at all of our community ponds. Spin fisherman using small and light spinners have found a few fish early in the day. Terrestrial imitations can provide fly fisherman with some exciting dry fly action all day long.

Pertinent Information

Davis Creek Park Pond is a natural shallow lake that has been enhanced over the years to its current size of 2.5 acres and a depth of 15 feet. Fed by Davis Creek that flows intermittently and a ditch that brings water from Ophir Creek, Davis Creek Park Pond usually remains full. The pond is managed as a put-and-take fishery and trout are generally caught shortly after being planted. Use small worms or Power Bait and small spinners or spoons. Fly-fishing is also popular. Davis Creek Regional Park is a beautiful, wooded area located in Washoe Valley between Reno and Carson City. It offers day-use, picnic areas, restrooms, and Davis Creek Campground is within walking distance to the north.
