Fishermen have had great successes in recent years at Pomona Lake. State record Flathead catfish and Wiper were taken from Pomona waters in recent years. Crappie are plentiful in the 4,000 plus acre reservoir and can be caught in great numbers seasonally when water conditions are just right. These fish are most vulnerable in the spring. Crappie become shore-bound by lake April and fishing becomes hot and heavy by May. Spring fishing methods differ from summer because the crappie are spawning near shore among submerged brush and rocks. Jigs may also be fished with white or red twister tail grubs.
Channel catfish can be located at almost any location on Pomona Lake. Some of the most popular sites are located in Cedar park, and the outlet channel. Cedar park is located on the north side of the lake. There are many "snags" surrounding the campground which provide excellent structure for fish. The outlet channel is located below the dam. Timing is important if you fish the outlet channel. Fishing is best when releases are high or when the release rate has just been cut back.
Early in the spring White Bass can be caught in large numbers along riffles in the Dragoon Creek. Several fish feeding stations are operated on the lake to provide high-quality fishing opportunities. These feeding stations operate on timers distributing fish food that aids in attracting all types of fish during day and night hours.
Pomona Lake has one handicapped fishing dock located in Michigan Valley Park adjacent to Northshore Marina.
The Corps has paved boat ramps at the following locations: Management Park, North Shore Marina, Adams Grove, 110Mile Park, Carbolyn Park and the Dragoon Access area.
