Coon Brook Bog
Coon Brook Bog is a six-acre brook trout pond. Fly fishing only, this special spot is teeming with wildlife. Moose, deer, bear, geese, woodcock, ruffed grouse, red winged blackbirds and more, enjoy this remote location. Woodcock spend the summer on the shore of the pond.
Fishing on Coon Brook Bog is good for brook trout in this spring-fed pond. Expect 6-12 inch brook trout along with the occasional larger brookie. The mud/peat bottom of the pond makes wading difficult. The pond is best fished by canoe, john boat, kick boat or kayak. Area lodges rent boats on the pond. Check at Lopstick or Tall Timber.
Part of the Connecticut Lakes Region, Coon Brook flows east out of the pond and into First Connecticut Lake across from Green’s Point.
Season opens the 4th Saturday in April and runs to October 15th
