Benches Pond

Fishing report

  • Rating: Good
  • Conditions: On July 13, the pond was stocked with 500 10.5-inch rainbow trout. On July 15, Walt Maldonado reported good fishing with corn-flavored PowerBait, especially under overcast skies. Last week, conservation officer TJ Robertson reported fair to good fishing, depending on the day. He says you can catch fish on any color of PowerBait. The moss build-up is making it difficult to spincast. Robertson recommends using a fly and bubble at dusk.
