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. Some will try ponds.
Located throughout the United States, retention ponds have become 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.
