Some of you have caught some big fish in South Park lakes, rivers, and streams and if not...come in and we can show you where to find them and check out the proof in our ever growing "Photo Gallery" with pictures from 2004.

Chaparral Park General Store is close to all great South Park bodies of water and rivers, come by and say hello and we will point you to some hot spots where the big ones live. We also have the tackle and gear that will help you catch them!

Lat spring ice off to early summer you have a great chance to catch a South Park fish anytime. Hint: Do not forget about the rivers and streams which can produce some big suprises eager to slurp up the eggs of spawning fish or river bugs. It's simple you just have to know where to find them and how to catch them. If you want to buy some tackle, learn some local South Park techniques on how to catch a big South Park fish, or just want to tell your fish story after a long day of fishing come into the CPGS store and we will be more than happy to give you all the details or lend you our ear. We also can help you purchase or rent some or all of the fishing tackle, flies, and gear you will need.
