Lorenzi Park Pond
Lorenzi Park Pond is located in Lorenzi Park in northwest Las Vegas and operated by the City of Las Vegas.
Lorenzi Park Pond is approximately 3 acres in size and has a maximum depth of approximately 10 feet. The entire shoreline of the reservoir is accessible for angling. Water quality is generally good, but the surface elevation can vary depending on park irrigation needs. The pond is subject, seasonally, to noticeable blooms of green algae due to warm water temperatures and nutrient input from the numerous waterfowl that use the pond. This is an aesthetic problem, but does not affect the edibility of the fish in the reservoir. The pond is accessible for fishing during open park hours (times are posted at the park entrances).
The primary game fish species in Lorenzi Park Pond are rainbow trout and channel catfish. Catchable-sized fish of both species are stocked seasonally. A small number of largemouth bass and panfish inhabit the pond and are caught occasionally. Because of the small size of the pond, species other than trout and catfish are not routinely stocked.
Improved day use areas with shade shelters, picnic tables and barbecues are available on a first-come, first-served basis. There is no fee for park access.
Lorenzi Park Pond is stocked weekly with rainbow trout from November until March, and with channel catfish at least monthly from April through October.
Lorenzi Park is located on Washington Avenue in Las Vegas, west of Rancho Drive and 1 mile east of Decatur Boulevard, north of the US 95 freeway. Direct access and parking for the fishing pond is through park entrances on Twin Lakes Drive, which is the west boundary of the park and connects to Washington Avenue.
Small spinners, still baits such as salmon eggs, and fly fishing can all be effective for rainbow trout.
The daily and possession limit are 3 fish of any species in combination. The use of live bait is prohibited in Lorenzi Park Pond.
