Saint Vrain State Park Ponds Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"These four ponds (formerly known as Barbour Ponds) are located along the St. Vrain River just before it crosses under Interstate 25 east of Longmont. The ponds offer wildlife habitat and recreational opportunities, as well as fishing.
The best fishing is in the spring and again in the fall, when rainbow trout are stocked. With nearly 60,000 10-inch rainbow trout stocked, this is the most accessible catch-and-keep rainbow fishery along the northern Front Range. Shore-fishing with spinners and worms works best for trout and panfish. Use a belly boat to work the shoreline, where submerged structures and vegetation hold bass up to 2 pounds, with top-water plugs and weighted jigs.
Key Species: Rainbow trout, largemouth bass, bluegill, crappie."
