When I read the threads about the expo ponds I see ponds referred to as "the back one" or "the second one". These descripions are so vague.

As near as I can tell there are three main ponds: the pond right next to Penninger Rd., the pond behind that one (which appears on google maps to be two ponds separated by a levee of some sort), and the pond by the amphitheater. Which one are people calling "the first pond", "the second pond", "the back pond", etc.?

Which of all these ponds have bass in them? Which ones get stocked with trout?

Thanks for any help!

Warm water species can be found in all of them. Trout are usually just in the big one by the horse stables, but this year they planted them in all of them i think. Trout fishing probably wont be good for much longer there. Im sure most will go belly up from the heat or end up as bass food.

I was at the pond by the amphitheater this morning at 6:00am and fish were jumping all over. I couldn't tell what they were, but they all seemed to be quite large. I assumed they were trout. I am new to bass fishing. Do bass jump like trout do?

Shane's pretty much spot on with all of that. And if it was big fish jumping it was mostly likely carp. There's tons of them in there and some going over 20lbs.

Does anyone think that any of the ponds are better for bass than the others?

What is the best method for catching the carp in those ponds this time of year? I've tried several things for carp, and I never have much luck. What do I do if I'm a spin-fisherman?

I haven't fished for them much so maybe someone else can give better advise. However, the couple times I have fished for them I've used a few pieces of corn fished on the bottom and caught a few fish.

Okay thanks. So just like a small single hook with 2-3 kernels of corn, then? I will try.

Thanks a lot! I always wondered how to tie one of these. I'm gonna have to head over to Medford to try this now...
