Default Pittsburg hike ins

I'm looking to do a June trip to Pittsburg. Probably stay at Lake Francis SP. Does anyone have good intel on the hike in ponds as to which ones fish better or are more capable of holding/producing larger fish? PM me if you'd like. I have fished a little under half of the aerial stocked ponds and can trade my info on what I have experienced. Thanks!

Default Walk in ponds

I fished in Pittsburg for years until the number of folks turned me off. Two of my favorite ponds were Boundary and Scott Bog. We typically fished the third week in June and hit these ponds Friday and Saturday when the river was packed with fisherman. We would use blue damsels and griffith's gnat's. The key was to float into the pond and cast into the weeds using a slow retrieve back into the open water. Typical fish size would be 6" to 10" but you could catch 25+ fish in an afternoon. Now I have caught a few sizable trout in Boundary dragging wooly buggers on sinking line in the deeper water at the north end of the lake next to the only camp on the water. Biggest I recall was 18"+ and wasn't the only one this size but the number of fish caught dropped off dramatically.
Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info. Part of my plan was to avoid the crowds as well.

The reason why the fishing sucks in boundary is because they stopped stocking it. They thought that there was sufficient natural reproduction. Ask them to start stocking it again lol

The fishing at Boundary has declined more because of the road being fixed so they could get equipment in to fix the dam. This has allowed more people access as before you really needed 4wd.
