The shuree Ponds are Special Trout Waters where the fishing is limited to artificial flies and lures with a single, barbless hook. There is a two-fish limit and a 15-inch size limit.

The hotspot lately has been Eagle Nest Lake. Anglers using Power Bait have been doing very well from the bank and anchored boats. Several big fish were landed last week.
