Anyone else ever fish there? I was there last year and caught a couple of LM bass pushing 5lbs. I believe it is fed by Centennial, but also may get some overflow from the Platte. When I was there I only saw bass and carp and was the only one fishing it. The bass are hard to catch mainly because of the brush in the water. I was just curious if anyone else new anything about it! Also, I have seen some very nice smallies in Centennial, but had no luck getting them to hit.

I don't remember the cross street off of Federal, but if you know where Centennial lake is and you park in the lot stay to your left and follow the dirt path past the over growth and you are there. It is behind the N.E. corner of the lake.

I live across the street from Cent. and the pond is fed by the lake but not enough over flow EVER for fish to go through the 2 tubes. The lake overflows all the time as it is spring fed. The overflow is only about 2 or 3 inches deep at any given time. It overflows into a small area where there are big rocks, no way for a fish to ever get past them. Evan with the river as high as it is, the pond still has a downward slope to it emptying into the river. Hardy a chance for a fish to get into the pond from the river. I'm guessing these bass or carp that are in there are transplants from years ago. There is a large beaver dam in the pond as well. Late summer the pond is very stagnant and low. Your right about the bugs down there and garbage. Don't waste your time thinking your going to have a "hayday" down there. Not worth your time ! Maybe I'm wrong about how the fish got in there, but I've been down there with my dog many times and have never seen any fish in there.
