Steph, here!

Andy Adams Community Fishery is one of our favorites! My mother in Law is an Adams and many of her ancestors settled Kaysville and Layton. Elias Adams being one of four pioneers that settled the area. There are several places named after the family including Adams Canyon, Andy Adams Park, and Andy Adams Reservoir and Community Fishery.

The kids took a fishing class from Layton City 2 year ago here at Andy Adams Reservoir and loved it!

We like to come catch fish, tadpoles and play in the water.

Did you know kids under 12 can fish without a license?

There is also a short trail that leads around the pond. 

The Reservoir is located at the east end of Gordon Ave and tucked between a golf course and a hill with the mountains towering over the east side. It really is a beautiful setting.

We recommend coming early or late, there isn't a lot of shade to fish. The trial on the other hand is well shaded most of the day.

It was such a beautiful day when we went, the boys were busy catching bugs and the girls were so excited to wear their summer dresses from Chickie Cheeks. They are made of light soft cotton, perfect for summer. And the embroidery is all hand sewn! 

“Where your talents and the needs of the world cross; there lies your vocation.”
