Fishing Pond

Update: April 12, 2017, Fishing Pond gets another long awaited fill-up from Mother Nature!

We’re sorry, but we have not yet been able to find a new provider for fish stocking for this year as of this date.  Our provider of fish for the past 15 years has gone out of business and most small pond fish stocking companies have gone out of business due to the past drought conditions and their inability to maintain stock ponds due to lack of water.  Because most companies have gone out of business, and most other large fish stocking companies are not taking on any further customers at this time due to high demand, we are having a REALLY HARD TIME trying to obtain fish for our pond this year.  There are still fish in the pond, just not as many as usual because we have not been able to stock.  As soon as we are able to stock the pond, we will update this page, so keep checking back.

We were finally rewarded with some decent rainfall this winter and the fishing pond filled up enough and even ran over!  The level has gone down some because of the soil being dry from 5 years worth of demoralizing drought.

Imagine a lazy day spent with your son or daughter on the edges of Pinezanita’s fishing pond!

Many a memory has been created when father and daughter, or father and son have caught their first fish while fishing at Pinezanita RV Park and Campground. While Pinezanita is not a world-class fishing location, several generations of fishermen have created and enhanced family traditions along its edges. The pond is strictly for fishing (sorry, swimming is not allowed) and we keep the pond regularly stocked with blue gill and catfish. The pond covers about an acre and a half and is surrounded by trees. The color of the water is red like the clay soil that is rich in iron. The color has been greenish-red at times, but on the whole it is “muddy” colored and never clear due to the clay suspension in the water that never “settles out”. Several prime tent camping sites overlook the pond. Fishing is permitted with a small fee. Assorted tackle and bait can be found at Pinezanita’s Registration Office for catching even the shyest of fish. To assure a quality experience at the Fishing Pond, we require an adult to accompany children under 12 years of age. Pets are welcome as long as they are quiet and remain on a leash an out of the water.
