Island Pond

Island Pond is always a favorite. This fly fishing lake is in the middle of the ranch between Elmer’s Pond and Fisher Creek Pond. Island has a small island in the middle, thus the name. Canadian Geese have nested on this island so you can watch them during the nesting period. This pond is an easy one to fish from shore all the way around. There is a deep trench alongĀ  the dam and the road runs along it so you can just hop out and cast. On the other side there is a large weedbed that gradually drops off into the depths. The giant Brown Trout, Rainbows and Tiger Trout often cruise along this weedbed and you can sight fish to them as they sip your dry fly or crush your streamer. Hop in a pontoon boat or float tube and you can sneak up from a different angle.
