I'm going to need some new ponds to fish at! Got the home inspection today then appraisal soon to follow. Got a crib walking distance to Olde Town Arvada--crazy pricey but better than renting.

Not looking to bust into anybody's honey holes in Arvada but I'm going to miss my little Lakewood bass ponds! Is getting an annual pass to Arvada Reservoir worth it for a shore fisherman?

Any tips, suggestions, etc would be awesome. PM me!

ps -- need to sign up for trash service as well. I know there was a thread not too long ago about it. Moving to a non-HOA hood.

Arbor is a good carp lake, has a bunch of other species. They did stock walleye in there at one point. Pomona is another good carping lake, same with Ketner which is across the street from Standley. Arvada res is a fun place to fish as well.

I'm just a few miles north of you in arvada...only fished Arvada res once though but I have heard plenty of good things about it. Arbor does have walleye...but not many from my experiences, much better for carp and smaller gills/sunfish. Jim Baker res has lots of lmb and smb but a lot of people fish there for the slimers that they load in there in the spring. Prospect Park and Lowell ponds offer a bunch of options for different species. there are a bunch of neighborhood ponds too but like bobys said a good number of them are private.

I use waste management. Little pricey but I like it because they take pretty much anything I put out there nonmatter the amount. A lot of other services have restrictions

Congrats on your new home!

Colorado home values are increasing constantly and you'll build up equity in no time. You can use that to get a boat, snowmobile or anything else you want! 8)

Congrats on the house and good luck on the move. Housing cost has gone up so much in the last 3 years that it has killed my former plans to trade up. Just getting ready to get a vacation home in the south some time down the road now.

Waiting on the appraisal but everything looks to be a go! Pretty stoked. I'm gonna check out Arvada Res...if it's anything like BC, it might be worth it to me to get a pass...too bad you can't ice it! Booooooooooo!!!!

How about Pro Disposal?

Rheinlander Bakery is something that haunts me every time I go to Arvada... their sticky buns are soo good as well as their strudels etc. voted best bakery in Denver. I heard some of those ponds in those areas have big saugers. might be one of those back in the day stories...
