I went to shinn last night. In the pond behind shinn theres tons of largemouth fry, very active. I also spotted a few a few bluegill, after probing the small pond structure on small jigs and texas worms,with no luck. we went to shinn and tossed in anchovie, chx liver, clams. Best results with the liver. Caught two small fish witch i belive to have been carp, not sure though. overall i would go back its worth a shot escpecially if you live 8 miles away like me
Shinn pond is in fremont, the way I get there is go south on niles rd past the nursery and take the first right after the nursery I think the name of the street is hillveiw or something like that. then take a left on school road you will pass a comunity center and there is a parking lot just after that. From there you can see the first pond take the cement path to the right it goes behind the comunity center walk about 200 yards and you'll see shinn pond
I know there are catfish still in Shinn. And my son last year causght a bass. Funny story last summer wife and son I were fishing in the evening for cats. WIfe threw her line out put her pole on the ground to get the tackle box to sit on. All of the sudden it starts moving toward sthe water. I stopped it and she had about a 5lber on the line.
She re baited with garlic marshmellows and does the same thing as she forgot the tackle box. This time the pole took off like a rocket could not stop it. So somewhere there is a pole at the bottom of the pond.
By the sound of it that place is fished out, when I fished there you never got skunked. I guess the DFG stoped stocking it.
*I understand thay made a Regional or City Park out of that area includeing all of those quarrys in tha area. Thay stock different fish in the different quarrys. Trout, Bass, Cats. Alameda Creek *had regular trout plants back ..... wait that was in 82 .. thats what? 24.. man, I'm getting old now wonder that place IS fished out.
I take my lab swimming at Shinn pond often and I have fished it only a couple of times. Have caught 0, nada, nothing. I know that there are fish in there but have never seen anyone catch anything other than a small blue gill or crappie and that is rare.
I believe that that area does close at night but I don't know what time. I would be careful if you fish those ponds at night as there are numerous homeless, low lifes and other strange 2 legged critters that hang out there after dark.
