25 Rainbows today in three hours. Really disappointing to see all the garbage and cigarette butts on the ice and in the parking lot. The parkinglot has two large garbage cans?! They are BROWN in color, if you are having a hard time and or are confused. *Fish don't feed on fibreglass and tim hortons cups *

Was here three times in the last week, only thing that has let me down are the humans. People! pick up your f ing garbage, this is getting rediculous. What kind of example are you setting for the young people? Trout do not feed on cigarette butts!

Been to this pond twice a week since Xmas and haven't failed to catch and release a dozen trout in an hour. __The bite was slower today but the biters were all over 12 inches.__This is a great place to take a kid and get him hooked on ice fishing.

Well all you anglers , I was out to try my luck since it was the best November 8th we had wittiness in years Temp was high of 19 C , it was very calm water that day , my buddy used a bobber , had nibblers but with no luck of a catch , I on the other hand as always rig my line with 30 inches from small hook with weight tied off , ,Caught a 11 inch , it had swallowed the hook as I always say I not for skuncked , ,even if I had got skunked , its always great to get out to fish, Oh forgotten to mention a very small full tailed fox ,tried to take my fish from behind me , So if you ever see the fox don't panic. He more afraid of you then you should be of him , Just shout he go away , its nice to see and have the wildlife near by us , keeps us all in touch of how teal our world really is , Thanks for reading enjoy the sport of fishing ,again I express try to pick up your litter and don't be cutting down the trees and starting fires. Dam if your coming out to fish wear extra clothing , it takes years to grow trees ,and for your lazy grass to dress for the occasion ,Thanks Steve o

by Steve o on Sep. 27, 2016

Hello again all , Before I start thanks for reading AWG,Well I not been on ifish for awhile now , But I have for sure been fishing ,and yes here at Cardiff , I only been skunked one night this month , but for all other times I have caught 1 to 3 fish and I can note they have been larger in size , since they have had 5 months to grow larger, The water level has dropped a lot , I not sure why I am thinking the pipe line I see being installed may be one , The weather has been awesome , ,The trout are still biting on whatever used , but I can say that as time has passed and the fish that were raised in a hatchreis , are now becoming more adapted to the wild for feeding ,so the sport fishing has began , The fish stock I can also say is doing very well, As each time I been there from mid afternoon until sunset ,had noticed a lot of jumping going on. Now for my pet peeves , And I hope that a Wild life game officers catches those in the acts of ,Cutting down the tree scurbs around the pond so they can fly fish , dam think people , there a lot of fly fishing areas without destroying the beauty of the park , Do you have fish for brains , fish swim around , and others who have camp fires on the shoreline of the ponds areas , I hope others reading this , can post a Emergency number for quick responds , For Cardiff Pond , and if you do , I myself will add it to my contact list , and maybe others to will follow ,well all happy fishing and looking forward to ice fishing , PS , as of my other postings , I have noticed I not seen anyone taken crawfish , but then again I not seen much in the water , maybe they been already fished out , but a reminder , those keep the pond clean , so let's not take them , Thanks Steve o

To all anglers. Call fish and game if you see anything. Even if it is legal in the end. They love to give info to ppl and educate them. It's part of there job and most enjoy it. As to the law breaks. don't cross my path. Happy fishing

Star Star Star Star Star

by Steve o on Aug. 18, 2016

I think the people of cardiff , do a great job at keeping this park pond clean and very groomed grounds of the park , The stocked rainbow are a very clean fish , My outlook as a angler , That for others who fish this site , should respect the water the park in keeping it clean and tidy , so the years to come others can enjoy it as well , Rules and Fines maybe should be issued to those who wreck the beauty of this wonderful site , The goverment should write the fishing rules in all immigrant languages , so their no excuses used when you see some taken buckets of small bait fish , Which I can't say for sure what theydo with them , but looking around after they have left leaves me to believe that they make a bait chum from them and toss it into the pond with a line attach , Leaving me again to guess , its used to attract raindow fish around it , so they can catch fish without the sport of patience involved in catching fish , To me those who do this is not fishing but poaching fish, A hefty fine should be placed upon those who break the law as well , As I have mentioned keeping the water from litter and the grounds , Now on crawfish hummm , they again should be left in the water for these keep the water clean , not be taken out for food , Think about it , you need hundreds to fill a family , , Now for the fishing itself I find patience and weather plays a huge roll catching fish , Some days you catch one which I call not getting skunked , the size range from 9 inch to 14 inch , myself if the fish not swallowed the whole hook I release it , on the other hand if its over 15 inch in lenght I keep , You will noticed that the fish are very clean and not muddy tasting , So please report poachers and those who litter the waterway and grounds . Thanks for reading my comments , maybe you too can leave your comments on those who break the laws

patd i'm an immigrant and just caught 15 with my 2 boys yesterday all catch and release , using dry flies we dont eat stocked rainbow trout i think it taste nasty but that's just my own opinion , dont be racist if someone is keeping his/her limit then that's within their rights as long as they have a license. you know the licenses everyone gets some portion of what we pay does get allocated to the stocking program, so without the licenses everyone pays for do you think we would have any stocked ponds ?, you know stocked rainbows doen't re-produce and alot of it dies from summer/winter kills , if you see a poacher whether an immigrant or not just report them . Immigrants have helped out building this great country as well isn't everyone an immigrant unless you're native

@patd you just hit a bad night. I was out last night and caught over 20 in 2h on a prince nymph. Later into august it gets the worse the fishing seems to get as well.

So you mean the immigrants fished out this pond?

by patd on Jul. 11, 2016

Usually not the type to buy into it when people say a place is fished out but now I get it. I fished here mid June and caught and released my limit four times in two hours. Fished here today and in three hours I had one fish rise for a green drake. Saw maybe ten rise the entire time I was there and not one person along shore landed one. The immigrants have fished out another good pond!

If you bathe the fish in milk for a little bit it pulls any muddy/metallic taste from the meat. Or throw them in the smoker. Just delicious. Alder smoke btw.

Star Star Star Star Star

by LRD V8R on Apr. 12, 2016

Hey Droc1. It is a great pond for kids as there are many shore locations to do easy casting from. There is even a dock. And if the kids get bored they can fish from the dock for crayfish. :-) Go for rainbows. Bobber and worm work good. So do pickerel rigs with Powerbait. And at times the action can be non-stop with a fly rod and mosquito pattern during the summer at sun down

Star Star Star Star Star

NorthernYaker 11m is pretty close to your 34 ft, but I have noticed the water level has dropped over the past few years.

Spring fishing near. Went out to check it out yesterday and there was about 2-4 ft of open water around the edges. When I went to the dock it had about a foot and I put my hand down to check the ice it's about 4 inches left. I'd say by the weekend you should Atleast be able to get a line in the water.

Star Star Star Star Star

by sedubius on Mar. 19, 2016

@LRD they never aerate Cardiff as at around 90ft deep there is no need. Also the ACA has stopped most aeration programs due to a loophole in the laws regarding lake aeration.

On several occasions over the past year (including today), I've tried fishing here over the lunch-break and at sunset - but have never caught anything yet. There's certainly lots of small trout jumping at sunset, but I've never managed to land any yet. It's a great spot for shore-fishing, with fairly steep drop-offs without a need to fear losing your lures in the weeds! One of these times I'll get one... :)

No luck fly fishing from the shore the other day. Plenty were jumping but I'm still new to fly fishing so I'll chalk it up to my ability rather than the fish or lake. Any suggestions for reliable fly patterns to use in the area?

Went out early today. It was dark and windy. Had several bites and refusals and landed 3. They were interested in my "orange indicator fly" but none took it. Did have some take the dropper after refusing the indicator. Better day than normal for me here. A guy did get a bite on a red devil from the dock on my way out.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Oly on Jun. 6, 2013

Depending on the winter, some fish may survive as I have caught large trout in the spring. Perch too. The problem at Cardiff are the lawn chair bait anglers who harvest every fish regardless of size leaving nothing behind but a pile of cigarette butts and Tim Horton cups.

by Schnidy on Jun. 6, 2013

They don't make flies small enough for these fish!! Lol why would they stock such small fish in a pond that winter kills every year?

by Dickweed on Sep. 15, 2012

Im fairly sure u cab use a Belly boat, drift boat and kayaks unless it says otherwise with some sort of signage, i think the only stupulation is no gas motors on some lake but im pretty sure if the watercraft is wind or muscular powered u should be ok... Im not 100% on that but fairly sure.. Thats jus my 2 cents im no CO tho.

Good small pond. Been out to it a couple of times, always a nice area and not terrible fishing. Never seen any perch but quite a few small stocked rainbows. Once in a while you can catch a good size rainbow that hasn't winter killed. Lots of fish jumping. Caught 4 small 6 or 7 inch throw back rainbows in the middle of may.

I am glad there was at least one left in the pond lol. Perhaps it was the one trout that i saw during the winter while looking down thru a hole in the ice. Is the ice completely off the pond yet? Somehow i doubt there are any perch in here as i didnt see any dead perch, only dead trout.
