Most anglers target brook trout in this pond. Like most Adirondack waters, early season trout fishing should target near shore areas with some cover. As water warms throughout the summer, fish will be hanging close to the thermocline at around 20 feet. Trolling with weighted line is an effective technique. While some panfish are present, they tend to be small in size.


Statewide fishing regulations apply (leaving DEC website to official Fishing Regulations Guide vendor website).
