Two Bass ponds, on a private ranch, located in the Pope Valley, east of St. Helena

This is private water and the fishing is usually very good. An excellent lunch prepared by our camp cook is as usual included.
This year Paul has planted trout in the larger of the two ponds.  The Ranch is a long way from a store or restaurant so be sure to pack a lunch and plenty of water. 

Best fished from a float tube, this is a great place for beginners and experts alike.
4-6 wt rods (depending on the wind) floating or intermediate lines.

Bass, Trout and Panfish.

Directions:  The ranch is just pass the Aetna Springs GC, which is located in the Pope Valley.  The best way is to google the golf course (Aetna, 1600 Aetna Springs Road, Pope Valley, CA 94567-941).  Drive to the resort and make a right and drive past the golf course.  Just past the GC you  will come to a TEE intersection.  Go right and proceed a ¼ mile to a gate, - go through the gate and you will see the trout pond on your right.   PLEASE LEAVEALL GATES AS YOU FIND THEM (CLOSED OR OPEN).
