Fishing Report

Marilyn’s Pond has been fishing well this fall but has also been busy. Fishing will remain good as long as temperatures remain pleasant. The pond will close for the season when we start to see it ice up. Until then, bait fisherman using salmon eggs and baby crawlers under bobbers are catching fish all day. Fly fisherman using small terrestrial dry flies have been catching fish on the surface early and late in the day. Stocking has slowed down for the season.

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.
