Floyd Lamb Park/ Tule Springs ponds
Floyd Lamb Park Pond is located within Floyd Lamb Park in the northwest part of the Las Vegas Valley. Frequently referred to as Tule Springs or Tule Springs Pond, this stocked fishing pond is one of a series of four ponds. These ponds were constructed on the site of a historic pond and marsh complex that was used by Native Americans for thousands of years before the recent settlement of southern Nevada. The Tule Springs area was used, beginning in the 1930s, as a private guest ranch before being acquired as a public park. The ponds are supplied by a combination of wells and artesian spring flows and serve as an island of habitat for other wildlife species.

The Nevada Department of Wildlife has finished its seasonal trout plants for the year. Local waters will slowly warm over the coming weeks, and action for warmwater species should improve. Catfish and bass have been seen swimming deep in local ponds but not chasing worms. Night crawlers and mealworms are great go-to baits when fishing with family or friends at the ponds.03-15-2023

Only the largest, uppermost pond is stocked with fish, although, during high water level, a few game fish may freely move into the middle series of ponds. The entire shoreline of the upper pond is accessible to fishing except along parts of the west side where vegetation is dense. It is approximately 5 acres and has a maximum depth of about 15 feet. Water quality is generally good with spring flows helping to keep summer temperatures cooler compared to other urban ponds in the valley. The primary game fish are rainbow trout and channel catfish, which are stocked seasonally. Other species include bluegill, redear sunfish, green sunfish, crappie, and largemouth bass. These latter species are not regularly stocked, but fish habitat placed in the pond provides cover for reproduction and recruitment. Small spinners, Power Bait, salmon eggs, and flies are effective for rainbow trout. Use spinner baits and rubber worms to catch largemouth bass. There is no overnight camping, but there are improved day use areas with restrooms, shade shelters, picnic tables, and barbecues.
