17-096 Golf Course Pond fishing-platform installation requires 1-day closure

Published Aug. 30, 2017
CLARKSTON, Wash. – Golf Course Pond, in Clarkston, Washington, will be closed Thursday, Aug. 31, to allow U.S. Army Corps of Engineers maintenance staff install a new, floating fishing platform.

The 10-by-20-foot platform will be connected to the fishing pond shoreline by an ADA-compliant ramp, improving public access to the popular fishing location, said Walla Walla District Park Ranger Matt DeBerard.

“We’re excited to be able to install this new fishing platform for our visitors in time for the Labor Day holiday weekend,” said DeBerard.

The pond, located about 2 miles west of Clarkston on U.S. Hwy. 12, is routinely stocked with rainbow trout by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. It also hosts an assortment of resident bass, catfish, bluegill, crappie and sunfish, DeBerard noted.
