Description: The Campbell Percolation Ponds is a chain of small water works ponds in Campbell. The largest of these is stocked with trout and catfish. The others have black bass.

Fish: Trout: Trout are stocked November-May. It's best to go the week after a stock, before the cormorants eat all of them. Any of the regular bait fishing techniques work fine. I haven't had much luck on kastmasters though.

Largemouth Bass: There are a few giant bass in the large, trout-stocked pond, but the lack of cover there makes it a tough lake to fish. Instead, fish the other tule-lined ponds where you can flip all day long.

This is also a great place to fish for carp.
