Crump Park Pond
Crump Park Pond is a 2-acre impoundment in the heart of Crump Park in Henrico County. The pond serves as popular destination for the public that visit this Henrico County Park. Crump Park Pond is managed as a channel catfish pond and is stocked annually. Additional fishing opportunities for sunfish and largemouth bass exist. The pond is more suited for young children or a family outing than your die hard bass angler. This shallow water fishery has some limitations, but can provide high catch rates of sunfish to keep young anglers interested.

The latest electrofishing survey on October 4, 2016 revealed limited diversity with 5 fish species collected. The collection revealed an abundance of bluegill in the 2 to 5 inch range, with a limited assortment of redear sunfish in the 5 to 7 inch range. The largemouth bass population appears to be comprised primarily of juvenile fish less than 12 inches in total length. The largest bass measured approximately 17 inches. A couple of black crappie and channel catfish rounded out the remaining collected fish. Fishing access to the pond is through bank fishing only. No boats are allowed in Crump Park Pond. The platform deck provides anglers a place to fish from. Plenty of open shoreline area allows anglers to scout out additional fishing spots that might be holding some larger fish.

Regulations for all other species are as follows:
- Largemouth bass – 18 inch minimum; 1 per day
