General Fishing Information
Most anglers target the trout in early to late-spring, shortly after their stocked. Fishing with worms, minnows, artificial natural baits (like Gulp or PowerBait) or corn suspended under a bobber usually works well for the trout.
Spruce Pond is stocked annually by Onondaga Counties Carpenter's Brook Fish Hatchery with approximately 1,300 year-old brook trout and 700 year-old rainbow trout. Special regulation exists for all trout waters in Onondaga County, so please review the Special Regulations by County section of your fishing guide.
