This pond will not be stocked until further notice due to whirling disease. :(

Witnessed a legend by the name of Ainsley Nelson catch a limit of 15%u201D perch out of here the other day. You sir are one of few who can HANDLE THE TRUTH.

Are you sure you at Hermitage? I have fished it for 25 years!! No fish stocking this year. Deepest part is 12 feet + 3 feet of sludge. The fish die off in January. No oxygen. Nothing to catch this year, don't waste your time!!

IMO it is unlikely they will stock it as it has been labeled as a likely spot for spreading Whirling disease.

Some reports are saying that there may be a limited stocking program this year due to whirling disease. I agree that stocked ponds should be C&R until Canada Day and have a under 16 only fishing derby weekend and then after that people can take fish home. Just a suggestion if fisheries is listening? Ponds are suppose to be a learning ground for the next generation, but I do not see many children fishing. I agree that kids being able to take fish on the family weekend might get the community message out there. Enjoy C&R for the next generation.

Good day everyone. It is again time to go Fishing and have too much fun fishing at Hermitage park pond lake. I want to invite to you because you love go to fishing just for fun and spent 2, 3 or more hours fishing, lest keep doing only catch and release until the family fishing weekend on July at least. That way we can still have fun until September. Lets go spread out with family and friend that go the pond even with people that we don't know. Maybe they don't know the rules or the y don't know that we only have fun for two month because people take all the fish that they can out. I'm personally going to try to tell everyone that I only catch and release at the pond. Using my T-shirt with this words slogan: I want to have fun all the season, that's why I only CATCH AND REALEASE! let's go fishing guys, see y'a at the pond.... By the way, I went today May 11th and the pond and it is not yet stocked.

Ice 18" thick, kind of smelly Methane gas once you open the hole. no bites but it was a nice sunny day.

by lotksie on Sep. 20, 2016

caught 2 around 11" using 52 buick fly

by MitoMan on Aug. 16, 2016

Nothing on anything! I tried worms, powerbait, marshmallows, and wet worms and could get a single bite. Is trout fishing really this hard or am I just missing something? There are fish I see them jumping but I am not sure what are they after

Nothing on the dry

by MitoMan on Aug. 11, 2016

Fishing Here with dry flies was great earlier in May. I want to go for a couple hours this evening or tomorrow but the comments below are not very encouraging. Anybody had some luck recently? Would dry flies still work?

Hardnox best bet is to use about 6' of line from a bobber with just a hook and worm!! usually works for trout from shore!! Or you could try same 6' of line with 1/2ounce weight and a floating bait like a marshmallow!!

by Hardnox on Jul. 9, 2016

Got my girlfriend a licence and a new rod with some jigs and odd n ends spinners trying to get her to hook into her first fish any helpful ideas would be appreciated. We are both using spin cast rods

Anyone know a good spot to fish the pond ?

The trout in the pond is getting smarter and smarter. If you cannot get any fish in the pond, try the storm water outfall at North Saskatchewan River. Landed one pike about 50 cm yesterday at dusk.

I agree with Pikster. Wish the limit was one and catch and release the rest. Many people are treating it like the local meat market. Or how about catch and release until July first and then have a kids fishing derby weekend only for kids and then allow adults to keep and eat after that July weekend.

Been out yesterday and caught my limit in about 3 hours. Fish were active but it is tricky to find what lure they would take. They finally bited on small flies I have. Nice day on this family park.

Anybody leave a fishing rod and reel behind. Friend of mine found one surrounded by a bunch of trash, he cleaned up and took the rod and reel and is hoping to find the owner. If you know the make or model let me know and we will try and return it

by pwned555 on Apr. 28, 2016

How big Ceogeo? If they were around 6"-8" then it has definitely been stocked, closer to 12" and they would be last years.

by ceogeo on Apr. 28, 2016

it must be stocked because I am a brand new novice fly fisher and I caught 4 in half an hour

Fished it for 2-3 hours on the 21st trying all around the pond with different methods and no bites or jumps. Thinking we still have to wait.
