Is the pond in front of the brighton Rec. Center big enough to put a float-tube on it. Any other "float-tube ponds" in the North Metro / Brighton area? I've watched the water level in Barr Lake flucuate so much, but I have fished it a couple of times. Fairly new to Brighton but like stillwater fishing. Both with fly or spinning gear. Thanks for any direction you may have.

Fishdawg...I fished Adams county fairgrounds a couple of times...I thought I saw people on there in a rubber raft...so maybe you can put tubes on there...

Public works pond (20 surface acres) is listed as "no boats". The larger pond Mann-Nyholt (55 surface acres) is listed as "belly boats only".

This information pulled from "Fishing Close to Home" 2003 edition. Hope it helps.

Thanks for that info. I didn't know there were two ponds there. It's been a while but I remember the one in front near the playground. Where is the larger one? Are both ponds stocked?

The larger lake is north of 126th ave. The smaller pond is further north of the bigger lake. Both are listed as warm water species with a 15" size limit on the bass. Mann-Nyholt is listed as "muskie" water but haven't heard any placed in there for a while.

Neither lakes are listed on the trout stocking report so we'll have to assume any trout stocking would have to come from a kids fishing derby or special exception.
