South Pond

South Pond

Directions to Access Points:

Start by following Route 28N/30 from Long Lake toward Blue Mountain Lake. There is a large parking area on the right about 2-miles past North Point Road. This parking area looks more like a rest stop, but it serves as both. The South Pond is located there behind the parking area through the trees. A secondary launch just before the parking are can also be used.

Shoreline Fishing:

Shoreline fishing is pretty good here and the shallow water help you reach a bit further out if you want to wade.

Boat access:

Cartop only. Fish the shallows and inlets where the water is cooler and the panfish is better here. The bass hang out in the deep waters in the center and south center of the ponds.

Fish Species:

Brook trout, smallmouth bass, panfish

Special Regulations:

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