I called the city of Willamina today. The park is open for walk-ins. She said they might post a sign stating that.

Which is Huddleston?

Which is Huddleston?

I was thinking of going up there myself, but when I Google it I am confused:
Can anybody tell me which of the ponds pictured here is the real Huddleston pond? Google Earth has two close ponds labeled the same...

I assume it is the larger pond to the North, but...

You are correct. It's the larger one to the north.

I have not been to Huddleston Pond yet but plan on going shortly. Do they allow any kind of boat or float tube?

Fire,

They do allow boats on the pond, but no motors. There is like a 14 ft limit though. As far as float tube, I'm not sure it is really deep enough. Maybe someone here has been out there in one. Pontoons and canoes have worked well for me. During the summer, the weeds can grow all the way to the surface. I have used floats and flies for trolling around for surface presentation. If you troll any gear though, watch out for the big ole submerged pipe running from the boat dock towards the dam.
I have seen more people land fish from the bank between the picnic area and the boat dock, than from the dock next to the dam.
Good luck

Is Huddleston pond also known as Willamina pond? If so that is where I caught my very first fish, probably 35-40 years ago. It was tradition from when I was about 5 years old that my uncle would take my brother and I down there after they stocked it and we would catch our limit every time. It was the highlight of my year and was the perfect way to get a kid hooked on fishing.

I remember it being so thick with fish that we would snag them. My uncle would make us throw those back. Good times.

I doubt there's any right now but I'm pretty sure it gets stocked in the winter with excess steelhead. So does Vernonia Pond and several lakes on the coast. They usually put it up on the ODFW weekly recreation report when the put them in.

so hard to do well there last time i was there, the ospreys were doing better than we were, weeds were so thick, don't see how the fish could find your bait. Out of 3 trips there we still got skunked, did see nice fish fin by, but nary a taker:(
