Dickert’s Pond is a beautiful two-acre aerated lake located at the South end of Camp Jordan Park behind the Arena.
This pond is monitored, and a TWRA fishing license is required. Beginning in 2020, TWRA will stock the pond with catfish in April, May and June and rainbow trout will be stocked in December, January and February.
There are plenty of parking spaces and picnic tables available behind the Arena.
The pond is a sanctuary for ducks, Canada geese, seagulls, cranes and turtles.
Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency stocks the pond annually, keeping it full of catfish, bass, brim, and crappie.
The East Ridge Optimist Club holds Fishing Rodeo on the first Saturday in June at 9 a.m. that is fun for all ages, and very family friendly.
