Does anyone fish the Denman ponds? I have heard stories about nice fish out at the pond by the airport in white city? I am planning on getting a map of all the ponds in the area from the fish and game. Any other info. would be great. Thanks, FenderBender :cool:

I like the big lake by the ODFW office because it has a boat launch. It holds good fish and holds well trhroughout the season. Doesn't get too crowded and there is plenty of elbow room for bank angling. The other ponds hold bass that get less pressure, but access through the overgrowth can be limiting. Talk to the folks in the office, they are friendly and helpful.

Finally got to fish the ponds. Caught a pretty nice fish the other day in one of the airport ponds. There are 3 ponds back there. I have traveled that road for the last 25 years and I just thought people took there huntin dogs back there. Can't see the ponds from the road. I will fish it a lot more from my pontoon. Walked around one of the ponds and got 4 ticks. Yuk. My son went a couple of days later and he had 35 ticks, and NO fish. Now that stinks.
I will keep you up to date. Doing a lot of raining now. Bender

Try Google earth instead of a map. What or where are these "airport" ponds?
