Tanaher Pond, within the Hammond Pond Wild Forest, is a nice spot for paddling, birding fishing with calm, sheltered waters.
From the intersection of County Routes 6 and 7 in Mineville, follow County Route 7 toward Elizabethtown. Continue for approximately 3 miles to a faint dirt access road on the right. Take this very rough road 100 feet to a small parking area.
This is the only access to hand launch a boat from the shore. Canoe, kayak or SUP can easily launch from shore. A small boat with a trolling motor no more than 5hp is also allowable on this pond.
By the numbers
- a slightly difficult 0.1 mile carry
- calm, flat water
From the parking area there is a short carry to the south to access the Tanaher Pond. The outlet between Tanaher Pond and nearby Mill Pond is too shallow and small to float a canoe or kayak. The water on this pond is calm and sheltered.
Northern Pike in this pond are quite small but still fun to catch, best caught from a boat in the center of pond. Shoreline fishing is limited, but you will find a few spots to cast out if you walk south along the shore.
Tanaher Pond supports northern pike, perch, panfish, and bullhead.
Many migratory and boreal species are found in this area.
