English Springs Park No Fishing Fail

Why oh why does English Springs Park, in Chino, California, not allow fishing? There is plenty of water (larger than some city park ponds that do allow the noble pastime of fishing, like Ford Park or Village Pond Park in Lake Forest, California), it's the only real fish-able body of water in the Chino community, and it sure looks like it as bass, bluegill, catfish and other finned monsters. Maybe someday the powers that be will open their minds to one of America's favorite pastimes and allow it at English Springs Park. Heck, they could even charge a fishing permit fee and make a killing off people looking to dunk a bobber & worm. Make it catch and release only, kid friendly, and fun. For now, enjoy the photos of this little urban park pond where fishing is sadly forbidden.

I have found a new favorite site! Sad and sorry about the news regarding angling here. Is it a waterfowl sensitive area? In Boise where I hail our city parks are open save one, that one designed as a walking loop in a Japanese Garden sort of construction. I cringe when I see the wonderful water and unsophisticated carp finning about. I worry about some of are others as they become discovered and people leave their trash. Nice pictures!

Hey Gregg,
Thanks for the kind words, glad you like the blog. I've been to Boise once, you have some excellent fishing opportunities up there too. Lots more "elbow room" than southern California. Tight lines!


Be nice.
