Arrow wallface ponds

the wallface ponds are fishless. sorry. the only good trout pond in the hpwc are moose, west of santanoni and livingston. if its fishing for brookies you seek then fish everywhere else but the high peaks. ill tell you a pond thats fishing real good...ah...i better not in here!

From what I've heard the Wallface Ponds are acid dead. I didn't see any fish in them this past weekend, but I also didn't bring my fish poll on the trail either.

Arrow good brooktrout fishing.

Supposedly, owls head pond near long lake is fishing real well. fished it a few years ago, canoed across long lake and followed up its outlet. caught a few around 2 pounds. i hit highrock pond two weekends ago, which just started getting stocked a couple years ago and got skunked. the only place ive done well is at sand lake in the five ponds a few weeks ago but its a bitch getting into from long pond rd out of belfort. gotta carry for a couple miles then paddle across rock lake. awesome spot... old growth white pine.

re: owls head

you cant padddle up the outlet...i carried a raft in a backpack for that one.
from what i remember there was a small area where fisherman have camped in the past but it doesn't get alot of use.

it's funny, but I was hiking in to Marcy Dam a couple of weeks ago and passed two people with spinning rods on their packs. I asked where they had been fishing and they said thay'd pulled a few nice brookies out of Marcy Dam. Go figure - I've seen the rises but never thought to bring the rod.
