Harris Pond

Harris Pond is a three-acre hilltop trout pond. Fly fishing only and home to brook trout, Harris Pond can be challenging to reach. Its remote hilltop location combined with an old, unmaintained dirt road makes access to Harris Pond challenging. This spot is great for hiking, picnicking and fishing. An ATV trail runs by the pond so access with ATV or quad is also an option.
