Warmwater Fishing

Second Pond holds small numbers of bass and pickerel, although some have been reported between 14-18 inches long. Second Pond also has an average number of panfish which provides summer fun for kids and adults. Shoreline access is available at various points around the pond, particularly near the boat launch and where the inlet creek comes into the pond from Long Lake.

Coldwater Fishing

Second pond is stocked with brown and rainbow trout with average lengths between 8.5 - 9.5 inches. Trout can hold over in the pond, offering anglers a chance to catch trout over 15 inches. A canoe may improve angler's chances in catching the bigger trout holding deep in the pond.
