Fishing Pond

The fishing pond is on the east side of the Snake River about a quarter of a mile below the Gem State Plant. The five-acre pond is open to the public.  It is stocked three times throughout the summer with a variety of fish. The pond is closed from March 1 to June 15 to allow nesting for waterfowl in the area. Nesting platforms, trees and grasslands have been preserved for nesting waterfowl.


The pond can be accessed via U.S. Highway 91, then west on Canyon Road (97th South). Watch for signs. An unpaved road turns north off of Canyon Road, and runs about 1 mile to a parking lot just south of the pond. Access to the riverbank for fishing and launching small boats is also provided just south of the parking lot.
