Pertinent Information

This 1-acre pond is approximately 10 feet deep and is a great pond to introduce youngsters to fishing. The shoreline provides easy access and kids are almost certain to catch rainbow trout or even brook trout from 8 to 10 inches. Use Power Bait, corn, nightcrawlers, and small spinners such as Mepps, Rooster Tails, and Panther Martins, and spoons such as Dardevles or Kastmasters. The best flies include pheasant tails, hare’s ears, prince nymphs, and Sheep Creek specials. The park has restrooms and picnic facilities, and the pond has an accessible fishing pier.
