The Div. of Wildlife website says they stocked Scott Pond in Elizabeth with catchable trout. Anyone know where that is? I can't seem to find any map with it listed, including the DOW website.

Located in the Pinery subdivision, Bingham Lake is quiet oasis that is enjoyed by hikers, mountain bikers, dog enthusiasts, non-motorized boaters and fisherman. Douglas County Parks and Trails manages the recreational facilities and the fishery. The one mile loop trail around the 25 acre lake is a popular attraction year round for local residents and visitors to the area. The shade shelter located at the west trailhead is a perfect location for a picnic as you take in the beauty of the front range and observe the waterfowl that frequent the lake.
The quality warm water fishery at Bingham Lake draws those that want to wet a line and test their skills against some of the various warm water game species that inhabit the lake. This includes large mouth bass, black crappie, walley, blue gill yellow perch and wipers. A stocking program began in the Spring of 2005 and will help insure that that the quality of the fishery is maintained. A small boat ramp is located at the west trailhead and the lake is open to hand-propelled boats, sailboats and vessels powered by electric motors

Actually Scott's Pond is off Hwy 86 at CR17-if you are going eb turn left at CR17 - you will pass an auto repair place on the left then Evans Park -- asa you see the outhouse on your left- look for a dirt road also to you left- drive in there and you will see the pond at the bottom of the hill.

Sandy's right. We were there today, and fishing is pretty easy. It is catch and release, artificial lure with barb pinched. The Elizabeth park ranger that stopped by later told us that there's no fishing until June 1. He was pretty pissed that CO Fish and Wildlife put their pond on the state stock map, as he insisted that the Elizabeth is the one that is stocking the pond. He said they will have city fishing permit available for purchase later on. Sounds fishy, but I do not know who owns the pond.
