Basswood Pond is most popular for its trout fishing. The pond has been reclaimed numerous times due to illegal stocking of non-trout species. Since the last reclamation, the pond is managed for both warm and cold water species. Annually stocked with approximately 350 brown trout 8-15" in length and 100 rainbow trout 8-10" in length.
