I tried it in the 90s so my take on it is pretty outdated. All I could score there back then was small bullheads.

If you're talking about the one in Aurora there are NO FISHING signs posted all over the area.

That's new then, I haven't fished it in years, but the DOW website lists it as fishable water (or did last year). I never fished it, but I've seen carp in there as recently as last year. Bet they're spooky, but they were in there.

Kind of sucks if it's off limits now. Was a good place for kids to learn! Easy access, and plenty of parking. (and a relatively safe space)

Maybe the "no fishing" signs are seasonal? Wouldn't hurt to check with the city.

There is some kind of senior center ringht next to the lake and I got asked not to let my dog swim by the Aurora "code enforcement" person,as the seniors felt it was harassing the ducks . . .go figure!There are better places for Carp in that part of town.
