Ok this is where I get confused On google maps Huddleston pond park looks like there are two ponds now I have fished Pacific plywood log pond. I think that is the one with the logs out in the water next to the yamhill. Or do I have it turned around?

Were you at Huddleston Pond Park, I'm sure there's signs up everywhere.

Shrugs I never drove there just rode lol. I do know there where tons of logs sticking out of the water, a shelter and a few parking places so I'll find it but if there are more than one pond thats fishable i want to hit them all.

Holy Cow!

Holy Cow!

Holy cow...I have fished the log pond on 3 occassions. And, each time I thought I was at Huddleston!!! :shock::rolleyes::(:confused: I followed signs that said "Huddleston Pond" and they led right to log pond! :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

And, I always wondered where "Willamina Pond" was. Never knew that it's right next to the REAL Huddleston Pond!

So, how do you get to Huddleston? Hwy. 18 / Main St. onto SE Adams?

BTW, didn't Willamina Pond get some brooders dumped in a couple of months ago?

Hey Mr. Myers,

This view shows Willamina Pond, just a hair south of the REAL Huddleston.

Willamina City Hall, does a fine job of posting signs to their ponds, don't they? LOL :lol::rolleyes::shock:

P.S. Maybe we'll rub shoulders tomorrow at Sheridan. (I only have time to go to one of 'em).

Straight off the ODFW website

HUDDLESTON POND - From Hwy 18, take Willamina City Center Exit. Turn left on
Main St. Follow Main St. to NE E St. and turn right. Proceed to NE Yamhill St. and
turn left. Follow Yamhill St. to pond.

Faulty Directions?

Faulty Directions?

Thanks Beaver for looking that up.

However, if you look closely at the map, those directions take you right to the Pacific Plywood Log Pond! And, if you come from the opposite direction and turn onto E street, you'll go north and completetly away from any of the ponds!

It looks to me, like ODFW is calling the Plywood Pond the same thing as Huddleston. And, it was those very directions (and the street signs in town) that lead me right to that pond...the one that's next to the mill and parallel's Hwy. 18. Those directions will NOT take someone across the river to the REAL Huddleston Pond, as near as I can tell. (And, I have taught map reading classes!) :wall::wall::wall::doh::doh::doh::confused::confused::confused:

If you find some directions to actual Huddleston Pond, please let me know.

It really looks like--if you come from Sheridan on Hwy. 18--that you should follow Hwy. 18 / Main st. into Willamina. Then, go left at the Fork w/ West Valley Hwy. and stay on Hwy. 18 going south. Then, take the 5th street to the left (SE Adams St.) and follow that back to either Willamina Pond and / Huddleston.

Hmmm, maybe I should send those directions into ODFW for clarification? :D

Thanks again,

TD

That's what I THOUGHT was Huddleston. It is where I have been going, and it is where ODFW directions say it is.

However, on Googlemaps...it is listed as a Plywood mill pond...and the REAL Huddleston is on the south side of the Yamhill River, and north of the Willamina Pond.

That's what I always thought of it as. I remember the first time I went I had trouble finding it with ODFW directions. I've seen the other body of water your talking about I think. There is also a fast running river behind it on the parking lot side. I'm pretty sure the utility building and signs there call it Huddleston Pond.

Glad too see that OSP is out and earning their keep. Wish they would check licenses more, as I often see guys take double the daily bag limit. [10 fish "in possession" does NOT mean you can take 10 fish from one body of water--thereby exceeding a legal daily bag limit of 5 fish].

And in regards to the real Huddleston Pond...thanks for the clarification. I had a hunch that it was somehow linked to the Plywood Mill pond, because I have been there after it's been stocked.

Nope, five a day. You are allowed to have 2 days limits in your possession. So like if your camping for 4 days you can only bring back 10 fish per person, not 40.
