Round Pond

Round Pond

Directions:

From the intersection of Route 28 and Route 30, follow Route 30 toward Speculator. Continue for 0.5 mile and turn left on Big Brook Road. After 6.6 miles there's a road with a steel bridge on the right. There is a trail marker located here, but no sign. Park here — Round Pond is 2.2 miles up this trail.

Shoreline Fishing:

Very good along the north shore. The trail follows the north shore, so access to it is excellent.

Boat access:

Not recommended since it would require a long carry of 2.2 miles.

Insider Tips:

  • While the hike to Round Pond is long the fishing is very good, especially if you are in search of panfish.
  • The panfish are of decent size and can be caught in abundance with just a hook and worm.

Fish Species:

Panfish, bullhead, brown trout

Special Regulations:

Always follow state fishing regulations and be sure to pick up a NYS Freshwater Fishing Guide at your local outfitters or regional DEC office.
