Fishing is now allowed at Thomas Mitchell Park Pond
There is an 18" length limit on bass. The number of large fish still remains small until the DNR relocates larger fish from Fort Des Moines and/or Easter lake later this month.
Major improvements to the pond have been taking place over the past next three years which have improved the quality of the woodlands and pond in Thomas Mitchell Park. Grant dollars have funded the installation of water control structures, construction and connection of new tile lines, reestablishment of native vegetation, pond dredging, fish restocking, and timber stand improvement.
