I just wanted to give the City of Flagstaff and the Arizona Game and Fish kudos for the improvements made at Francis Short Pond. I stopped by today for the first time since the “weed removal” project. I have to say WOW!!!
It looks amazing. Tons of new shore space for anglers (there were multiple times in the past I had to turn around and go home due to no room to drop a line). The pond is also full of water from the recent rains. I was unable to fish today but saw a couple guys catching bluegills one after another. I can’t wait until it is stocked this fall for trout.
As an angler of this pond for over six years now I am excited to see what the future holds. Thanks again for making this a great local fishing hole.
