you mean prospect ponds right? Just went this last sunday, it was drizzling a bit, it sucked. We didn't stay long it was actually kind of crowded my bf used his new belly boat and there was another guy on his pontoon boat and another person on a belly boat and someone was just packing up their raft. We saw the guy on the pontoon boat lose a fish and that was about it. You could check out riverbend ponds on the opposite side of prospect too, the bass and crappie are supposed to be pretty active. My bf got a blue gill with a fly. Anyhow good luck

Way to go Red! Colorado bassin' may not be as good as Texas or Florida but northern strain bass can still put up a good fight!

had limited luck there with bass there as of late.
the only thing that was getting them was a buzz bait and spinners though. nothing else seemed to be getting anything...

Red Sox Rocks --- Nice job !! ;D

We need to start labeling which Prospect Ponds (I don't think the Ft. Collins ones are actually called that, but that's how I refer to them also). I remember reading a post about Muskies being in there, and I was thinking the Ft. Collins ones. I was so psyked ;D It took me awhile to realize they weren't the same ones.

Red keep catching em !

If you read a post about muskies being in Prospect Ponds, it probably was referring to the Fort Collins Prospect Ponds. They've been stocking muskies in there for a while now (I think at least 10 years). So there should be some good-sized ones in there; almost no one targets them and they are rarely caught on accident (these aren't carp or stocker trout we're talking about. Even the most experienced musky fishermen put a lot of hours into each fish they catch).

To the best of my knowledge, the Prospect Park Ponds in Wheatridge have never been stocked with muskies.
