Marker Description:

Marilyn’s Pond was opened to fishing in 2003 when the existing pond was enlarged and improved. It is located at the Galena Creek Regional Park and managed by Washoe County Regional Parks and Open Space.

Pertinent Information
This 1-acre pond is approximately 10 feet deep and is a great pond to introduce youngsters to fishing. The shoreline provides easy access and kids are almost certain to catch small rainbow trout or even brook trout. There is a fishing pier that is handicap accessible. Anglers generally catch between 2 and 4 fish per day, which range between 8 and 10 inches. Bait includes Power Bait, corn, and nightcrawlers. Lures include Mepps, Rooster Tails, Panther Martins, Kastmasters, Vibraxes, and Daredevil Midgets; and the best tired-flies include pheasant tail, hare’s ear, prince nymphs, and Sheep Creek specials. Fishing is allowed during normal park hours.

The pond is scheduled to receive 3,000 catchable rainbow trout this spring and 1,000 catchable rainbow trout this fall.
