I ice fished Big Muddy in between casper & glenrock last year didn't do worth a crap , but didn't have my vexilar then! Have been wanting to try the pond by the dump there is quite a few different species of fish in that one!

No it is called Big Muddy Pond same highway just past edness kimble about another 10 miles then on your left you can see it from the highway! Some people call it the state pond. Game & Fish have been stocking it with bass for a few years now! Have seen a few alright ones cought there in the summer but don't think there is much size in there

I made bryan stock trail pond "the pond below the dump" look like Swiss cheese about 3 years ago. I had my camera with me and seen a lot of small gills and trout. I only caught a few trout that year nothing big. I have also fished it during the summer and have caught some really nice trout and cats. I have heard stories of walleye, perch, bass, crappie, trout, cat fish, carp, suckers, being caught out there. I personally have only caught trout, carp, and cat fish out of there

My dad has caught a walleye out of there before just one and it was in the summer!  How much ice is usually on there? I might make it there this year .

I have caught a 13lb channel cat. Last year there was 8 inches.  Where were you seeing the fish you saw?

If this weather keeps it up we will be lucky to fish it at all this winter! I haven't even checked the ice on Big Muddy pond yet this year sure it not good!

I know yesnes is uncovered but that pond will go back and forth. I will see what its like there by the dump, there is still quit a bit of ice on the river over there so maybe there will be some alright ice on it

In addition to being next to the dump, that pond is also by the water treatment plant. are those fish safe for eating?

Personally I am one of those people who catch and release fish back into the duck pond. I have known people to eat fish out of there, can't say they have gotten sick but I don't think I would risk it. A lot of people swim there during the summer and trash ends up everywhere. It is a shame what people do to that pond.

I have eaten trout from there when I use to fish there a lot and I ate the cat fish that I caught.  The water plant and dump are right by the river too but nothing is said about that.....

Good point Outdoorschris I think the river even feeds that pond, but don't know for sure!

Yes the river feeds that pond because it raises and lowers with the river.
