Some areas of the United States have limited or overcrowded space for anglers to fish. In fact, it’s hard for anglers to get out and go fishing. However, anglers are going to find water.
Located throughout the United States, retention ponds have become a fishing oasis for anglers. Unlike detention ponds that only hold stormwater runoff following storms for a short period of time, retention ponds maintain a reservoir of water all year long and hold rain from runoff following rain storms indefinitely. These retention ponds can be found everywhere from subdivisions, along roadways and everywhere in between.
Of course it’s hard to launch a boat since these retention ponds don’t have boat ramps. “They don’t have boat ramps, but it’s easy to launch a kayak on them. Fishing with a kayak is also inexpensive. Plus it’s really relaxing out on the water where there is limited access. The fishing can also be phenomenal on them,” said professional bass angler Bill McDonald.
