Directions to Access Points
Start at the three corners in Long Lake drive south toward Blue Mountain Lake on Route 28N/30. North Point Road will be on the right, in 3.0 miles – drive down North Point Road. There will be a fork in the road a few miles in; right leads to Forked Lake Campsite, left to the trailhead. The trailhead will be marked with state DEC signs on the left side of the road at around 3.0 miles.
You will have to hike around 1.4 miles to reach the pond along a foot trail.
Shoreline fishing can be had from many locations but it's easiest from the end of the trail. Panfish are fun for the kids, but sometimes a decent sized perch can be reeled in.
Cartop only with a 1.4 mile carry to the shore. Fishing Upper Sargent Pond is best done by boat if you can muster up the strength to carry or cart one in. It is the best way to reach the deeper water in the eastern bay for bass. Fish are few in the pond, so if you catch one it should be of decent size.
Brook trout, smallmouth bass, panfish, perch, bullhead
