This Pond is a Great Place For New Anglers to Learn Fishing Techniques

Arizona Pond - Ophir, OR (Curry County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

The pond is stocked regularly throughout the spring with legal-size trout and some trophies. It’s a great place for young anglers to learn some casting and fishing techniques. Try a little PowerBait with a bobber or a small spinner and you might be surprised at what bites! 

You may notice several buoys in the middle of the pond. These are marking vegetation suppression mats designed to limit the pond weed growth. Please use care to not snag the submerged line as you may find it quite difficult to get your gear back. 

Oregon State Parks manages Arizona Pond for anglers ages 17 and under. This is a great place for new anglers to learn fishing techniques.
