Some of the office complexes in the suburbs contain some nice bream ponds, thought the
legality of fishing these is a little hit-and-miss. Some are totally verboten and a groundskeeper
will come and chase you off, and others there's a kind of understanding that if you fish them after
the work day no one will care. It's not the same situation of fishing someone's personal property without
permission, which could cause you to end up with a butt-full of buckshot and I'd never do anyway. If you are
asked to leave, apologize, take off, and abide by their request. They might be less polite the next time around so
don't chance it.
These little ponds are great for fly fishing as they're usually open and park-like and give lots of casting room.
C&R is mandatory on these - you can clean out a one acre pond pretty quickly and judging by the trash left behind
by some of the slobs there are probably plenty of meatheads out there keeping fish already, so there's no sense in
making it worse.
I love fishing farm ponds, but they're in short supply around here and these office ponds are the next best thing.
Give it a try.
