Default How to tell if local ponds can be legally Iced

Hey guys their have been lots of reports of good panfishing action in smaller local metro ponds. How can I find out if they can be legally fished? I have been driving around south Denver, Littleton area and all seem to not allow ice fishing. Im getting very frustrated as I'm putting in way more time researching and driving around than I am on the ice. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Feel free to PM me. Cheers guys!

Call the Parks and Rec for the area the pond is in. Honestly local ponds are not safe right now and most cities don't allow ice fishing for the insurance purposes and the safety factor! Talking with a buddy this morning he told me his neighbors dogs chased some geese out onto a local pond last week, fell through and were never found by the fire department...not worth it...go to Chatty or the Crack!!!

If there is no sign I'd say go for it. I don't think there is a list of iceable ponds online or anything, at least I hope there's not lol

Dang I can't even imagine if that happened to my dogs. However, I don't think I'd let them by frozen ponds in the first place.

If I have a feeling no ice fishing is allowed I would not fish. If the ice is safe, I don't see the problem Pike.

another thing to consider...you trust the ice out on a metro pond and venture out, some little kids sees you out there and later try it themselves...POOF GONE!!! Stay with the metro lakes, big enough to stay away from others and a lot safer!!!

Tight lines!!!
