Farm ponds

Mike Mcdaniels

What farm ponds are full and have fish in them right now? Last summer tried a few but no luck. Also what ones will we not get ran off from. I always catch and release so I'm not taking the fish. And who's down to go.

I've hit up a few and some things are not looking good (around the Shafter area). Farmers put a chemical into the reservoirs that's like a weedkiller for algae. Bad part is that it will usually kill off the fish. Some ponds have recently undergone this. Just have to keep looking around.

  thats true navarro ive noticed that when they do it fish are floating around alot and some of the ponds that hold fish the fish disapear but i also think alot of ppl dont catch and release and it affects the ponds aswell some ppl keep fish that are not even keeper size becouse they are farm ponds dfg doesnt hit it that much.

Has any one tried the 2 ponds were milux rd dead ends into south lake road out off old river? I stopped by on my way in from work and seen minnows but the water was murky to see any fish. I didn't notice any lure bags or wrappers so it didn't look fished. Any one down to try them out? I think they are feed by the same system that feeds Bv and south lake.

We have this month off from tournements and my work finally went back to 8-5 m-f.  Hit up truxton twice after work this week. Back lakes doin ok, but front lake wtf? It's stupid mossy and low as heck.

Posted by Mike Mcdaniels Expert Member over 5 years ago - Report Abuse

Ever Aguilar

yeah the moss is a problem at truxton right now in the front but bass like grass  and a good texas rig will solve the problem, water level does seem down thoe and that sucks!
