Every once in a while I drive by this pond at work and I always tell myself I need to give it a try. According to a coworker the pond hasn't been there too long.

I may have canoed there once. Anything that is "old log pond" won't get my vote as a place to fish unless you want to catch and release. Being a woman, we have to stay away from fish caught in potentially mercury contaminated waters. Does that go for men too? And old log ponds would qualify. I would want to see if there has been any water quality studies done.

Old Log Ponds have been known to produce fish with extra fins and eyeballs as well as they glow in the dark ! Other than that I know nothing about this pond.

I've also driven by that pond dozens of times and wondered about it. If you find any fish in there (and don't get popped for trespassing); let us know.

P.S. The land does NOT have to be posted in Oregon. If you are there, and it belongs to anyone else, you ARE trespassing. So, I'd encourage getting permission first.

they also have been known to produce some pig size bass, if theres no signs, resect the land and the fish and maybe the person who ownes it would be glad to have you back....if you get aproached. thats what i always say. but if there is signs.........
