There are 11 fishable ponds at St. Vrain, that are stocked on a regular basis.
Ice fishing is allowed on all ponds except Pelican Pond, which has an aeration system that makes ice extremely dangerous. Ice fishing is not recommended when ice is less than 4" thick, cracking, or pocked. Check ice conditions below for updated information.
Bald Eagle Pond is artificial flies and lures only. Bald Eagle Pond and Blue Heron Reservoir are trophy bass fisheries: all bass caught on these 2 ponds must be immediately returned to the water! Only 1 catfish in your standard bag and possession limit can exceed 20" on Blue Heron Reservoir.
Blue Heron has been producing some good sized Black Crappie, Largemouth Bass, and Saugeye on jigs and lures.
Trout fishing is very productive in spring and fall depending on stocking. Stocked trout are only 8-10" in length and we do not recommend keeping them until they have matured and are of a healthy size: around 12-24". Overfishing these waters results in smaller, less productive populations.
Check the state stocking report for more information.
Don't forget your fishing license!
