How to Get There: From the intersection of County Route 6 and 7 in Mineville, follow County Route 7 toward Elizabethtown. Continue for about 3 miles to a faint dirt access road on the right. This is a very rough road; drive slowly down it for about 100 feet for parking.
Overview: From the parking you will have to carry a short distance on well used foot trail. It is not marked but the area gets many camping parties and it is pretty matted down. Once on the pond you will be able to relax and enjoy the super calm waters of the pond. Murray Pond is the small pond to the east of Mill Pond, which resembles more of a bay. This can be accessed from Mill Pond.
Type of Launch: Dirt
Type of Carry: About 200 feet, easy and with good footing.
Type of Water: Well sheltered, calm, no motorboats
Limited, but if you walk south along the shore you can find a few spots to cast out. There is more room for shoreline fishing on Mill Pond on the south side.
This pond is very similar to Tanaher Pond its neighbor to the south. There is only this one access for a boat. Canoe and Kayak are best or a small boat with a trolling motor or motor no more than 5hp. Northern Pike in this pond are quite small but still fun to catch, but the only real way to catch them is from a boat in the center of pond.
Northern pike, perch, panfish, bullhead
Always Follow State fishing regulations and be sure to pick up a NYS Freshwater Fishing Guide at your local outfitters or regional NYSDEC office.
Also please refer to the state regulations and preventative measures in reagrds to Aquatic Invasive Species, boat wash facilities, and the new state law of “Clean, Drain, and Dry.”
This is part of a cluster of ponds that draw a lot of migrating birds and boreal species.
