The ponds that are on the opposite side of C-470 from the reservoir are the South Platte Ponds, not the Chatfield Ponds. The Chatfield Ponds are on the Reservior side of the highway.

Thanks for the tip, Catfishking. I like those ponds, but I hate when someone launches a tennis ball right where I just casted, followed by a giant dog. I have to think the fish don' like that too much. I think I'll go after work today.

to get to these ponds do you have to go through the state park and pay $5 ?

Main entrance, go left towards the dam, go down that hill by the spillway, then proceed and you'll hit these ponds?

You can park in the gravel ponds on the other side of E-470 and then walk the trail under the highway and to the Chatty Ponds for free. You can also fish the gravel pond while your at it. I have done well for baby buckets in the gravel ponds (Platte Park). Good luck.

Went there Wednesday from 4pm to 8pm with the kids. Caught tons of little bluegill and crappie (too small to keep). Hooked into something big with a Rebel crawfish crank bait, but lost it. Dogs were a major problem. They run right up where you're fishing and stand in the water. Owners don't seem to care. I know it's a dog training area (hunting dogs, that is), but come on . . . Even the guys in the float tubes were having problems. Saw one guy drifting a night crawler and some fool throws a training decoy right where the guy's bait would be. The dog just about swam into the guy's line.
