The Lime Kiln Pond located in Bay Front Park is managed as a kid's only fishing pond. The pond is stocked and managed through a cooperative effort by the City of Petoskey, the Department of Natural Resources, and Miller-Van Winkle Chapter of Trout Unlimited. 

The daily bag limits are as follows;

- 1 Trout per person/day
- 5 of any other species (Bass, Bluegill, Bullhead, Sunfish, or Perch) per person/day.

Adults are encouraged to bring a child to the Lime Kiln Pond to learn how to fish or to enjoy a quality fishing opportunity. Limiting harvest and usage by those other than children ensures that this opportunity exists for the youth in our area.
