Davis Ponds, Staunton State Park


Description:Two well-stocked rainbow trout ponds.

Dates: June 6, 2020

POC: Yeida Chang 720-648-9526

Skill Level: All

Location: Davis Ponds, Staunton State Park

Meet Location: To avoid a group gathering, please make your way to Davis Ponds on your own. I plan on being at the walkway/dam between the two ponds around 9:30-10 am

Directions: From the Denver area, take US Hwy 285 South towards Fairplay. Take the Elk Creek
Rd/Staunton State Park exit. Turn right onto S. Elk Creek Rd and follow for 1.3 miles, then turn
right onto the Staunton State Park entrance road. You will need a State Parks pass or pay the
$8.00 day use fee. Just past the entrance station, park at the Visitor Center Parking lot. If that lot is full you can
drive a short distance up the road and park at the Ranch Hand Picnic area parking lot or
Meadow parking lot and walk back to the Visitor Center. The Davis Ponds trailhead is at the NW corner of the entrance station parking lot. Follow the trail and take the left fork for the shortest path to the Davis Ponds, about 1/2 mile. There is no public access to the ponds on Elk Creek Road. Do not drop people or equipment off at this location. Violators will be ticketed.

Meet Time: I plan on being at the walkway between the two ponds around 9:30-10 am, but will arrive at the parking lot I hope no later than 9.

  • Both ponds are stocked seasonally on the first of the following months – May,
    June, July, August and September. I have caught from shore using a Tenkara rod, but would
    recommend a 3-5 weight fly rod.
  • Flies: try all sorts of dry flies before you go subsurface. These
    are usually eager fish!
  • Bring water, lunch and rain jacket in case of showers.

Closest Fly Shops:

  • Blue Quill Angler, Evergreen
  • Arbor Anglers, Golden
