The Community Pond Has Fresh Trout and Bass!
Our Lilac Springs community in Eagle provides a beautiful backdrop for every season, and with summertime in full swing, it’s a great time to make the most of your community pond! This tranquil oasis at the heart of Lilac Springs offers a cool respite from summer’s heat and a peaceful retreat for Southwest Idaho fish and fowl – and now that it’s been freshly stocked with trout, bluegill and bass, this is the perfect opportunity to practice your cast!
We’ve added 100 fresh trout approximately 12 to 14 inches in size, and though they ordinarily prefer cold waters, our 17-foot pond at Lilac Springs should remain cool enough to keep them comfortable. An osprey has already been spotted snagging a few of these for a snack, so if you’re an angler, don’t miss out – these trout are ready for catch-and-keep fishing today!
We’ve also added 75 bass to the Lilac Springs pond, and though they’re just 3 to 4 inches long, we expect them to grow rapidly. We want these bass to start reproducing sometime this year, so if you happen to hook one (or one of the small bluegill serving as feeder fish), please make sure to follow safe catch-and-release technique.
Since our community pond holds a private permit with the Idaho Department of Fish & Game, there’s no need to possess an Idaho State fishing license before you cast your line – but we do ask that fishing be limited to residents of Lilac Springs only.
The community pond is just one more way to enjoy fun family recreation time anytime at Lilac Springs – take advantage of it today!
