You may recall me lamenting about fishing with kids. Just a few months after going to Cold Springs Trout Farm, my kids have turned completely around. Suddenly, they love fishing and suddenly, they love just sitting there waiting for the fish to bite!
In their defense, maybe I've just expected them to be horrible while fishing.
Maybe it was the location or maybe it was the fact they had their own little fishing poles. We went fishing at the Twenty First Street Pond in Ogden. We've fished this pond many times before, with no luck. For the first time in a few years, the fish were actually biting. They must have just stocked this pond with fish. Catching fish always makes it more fun. The kids even reeled in their own fish on their own tiny fishing rods!
We love coming to this pond because it's still in Ogden, has some decent shore space, picnic tables, and great views.
We've seen a couple raptor birds dive into the water to catch fish too!
I'm lucky that my sisters like to fish too, because my husband does not.
Along the pond runs the Ogden River Walkway, so you can easily ride your bike, bring a stroller or doing some walking.
Where's your favorite place to fish with the kids? Any tips?
- No bathrooms
- Picnic Tables
- Paved Trails
- It's a private pond, so respect the rules
- Two Fish per person
- No swimming, but the kids do wade.
- Pack it in, Pack it out.
