Since the Trout fishing at Bethany Lakes has slowed and while waiting for Frisco and Mckinney to receive their stockings, I opted to fish the community lakes in the area.

Stopped by Celebration Park at lunch today to test out the amazing Fish Pen.  I bought it on a whim after seeing the ad on TV.

Caught a little Catfish using Corn.  Posted pictures in the link below.

Checked out Celebration again this morning.  Cold but not windy. Caught a 14"Catfish.

Posted picture of the pond with ice forming and the Catfish on the link below.

Haha.

I got the "Worlds smallest fishing pole" from the wife for Christmas because I am always saying "I wish I had a fishing pole" when I see a pond...or any body of water.  When I opened it I was like "what the heck am I going to be able to catch with this?".  Guess I will have to put some new line on it and throw it in the glovebox to try it out sometime.

Good website, by the way.

Thanks Deadweight!

FYI - I had to make some tweaks to the Fish Pen before I could use it.  Mainly applying epoxy to the reel seat and the rod tip.  

The reel seat was loose on mine and would not tighten, so my reel kept falling off.

And, the rod tip kept popping off when I was extending the poles sections.

Else, it works fine as a backup outfit in an "emergency" and should do fine on small fish.

Checked out Celebration Park in Allen.  Caught small Sunfish and small Catfish on Corn.

Also, stopped by Bethany Lakes at Noon. Looks like fishing for Trout at Bethany will have to wait until next season.  No activity at all.

Fished Celebration Park's East Pond again.  Caught Catfish and a small Bluegill and Sunfish.

FYI - Used the Zebco Deliar; Catfish weighed 1/2 lbs.  Posted pictures of the Catfish and Bluegill in the link below.

Have you fished the two ponds east of Celebration Park on the east side of Angel Parkway?  I saw a guy fishing in one of them with is dog today.  They look deeper than the ones at Celebration Park.  

No place to park on the east side though (Rock Ridge Rd).  Maybe have to come in from Angel Parkway somehow.  

Saw some herons hunting on the shoreline too, so there must be some kind of life in there.

Have not fished the ponds that are further east of Celebration Park.  Not sure if it is part of the nearby sub-division or a private pond but it does look promising.

Quick notes from the field.

Checked out several community lakes in Allen. With the warm weather decided to try flyfishing for Bluegill and Sunfish.  Stopped by Bethany Lakes' Back Pond and Creek, a pond recommended by one of the forum members located along North Allen Heights, Allen Station Dam, and Celebration Park's North Pond.

Caught several Bluegill and Sunfish fishing a Bead Head Gold Ribbed Hares Ear Nymph slowly on the bottom.  Suspect that other nymphs would produce as well as a Wooly Bugger.

More details/pictures in the link below.   All for now. Good luck and good fishing!

Fished Celebration Park's North and East Ponds this afternoon.  Caught three small Sunfish on flyfishing gear using a Prince William Nymph in the North Pond.  Caught two small Bluegill using a Bread Fly in the East Pond.

Bread Fly is a pattern that I use when fish are feeding on bread thrown in the water by park goers to feed ducks and by fishermen chumming for fish.  Probably could have caught a lot more Bluegill but I had to leave for home.

Will give it a shot tomorrow and post results.

Update:  Chummed the East Pond at Celebration Park with bread and started catching Bluegill and Sunfish. Catfish followed with the action remaining steady.  Hooked but did not land a nice size Catfish - maybe 2-3Lbs. Kept at it for a couple of hours finally landing one on the Bread Fly.  Picture posted in the link below.

Update: Fished the East Pond at Celebration Park several times at lunch this week.  Have been trying to catch some of the larger Catfish.  No luck in landing them yet.  Regardless, the bite is steady with a few small fish landed.
