Are there any bass at the Thornton Gravel Ponds, and if so, tips would be helpful.

Welcome to the forum. Both ponds have both small and largemouth bass in them. For largemouth, the south pond has more of them, and usually a bit better sized as well. I'm not too experienced at bass fishing but I've caught them on HD trout lures, and when fly fishing on streamers. I've heard of guys doing pretty well on spinner baits but never tried it myself. I personally like the smallmouth bite at both ponds more, at both ponds I've had far better luck on them both number and bigger fish at both ponds. On them jerk baits work great, and for flys leech patterns with a sink tip work great. Try to find structure and you'll be good. Experiment with the retrieve and see what they want. Hope it helps, and if you submit a conditions report you can earn some points.

Anytime, and one more tip is fluorocarbon really can help when the water is crystal clear.
