Now that the pond is open for ice fishing this year I gave it a try. Lots of weeds all the way to the top of the ice. Blue gills and crappie are abundant however only had two keeper gills. one small trout showed up in the camera but moved on with just a nipple.

Once again, it is very hard to catch a trout. I understand that if i fished for them a little more than maybe catching them would become easier. Typically, i catch 2 or three on accident during the summer. which isn't very good considering I fish it 2-3 times a week because I live on the pond itself. I try for them the first month and probably only caught ten this year in the first month. Non as of late. Although the bass fishing keeps me out here, along with the bluegills too. Both species are there to be had if you know where to look. And I'll give everyone a clue, it's not the public stretch of shoreline where the majority of the fish population hangs. Or at least to my knowlege of where the bass and bluegills are. Trout... i guess i cant really say. I guess I'm just not a trout fisherman. haha But once again, judging by the past couple of years of fishing for me, I would say that bass and bluegills are the species to be targeted. And I wouldn't waste time fishing from shore. And it probably helps me catch fish because I do know some hot spots and where to look to find fish. Lastely, you do go out, please practice catch and release. It's a small pond!!! That's all I got to say.

Jr. Smalleye,

I am surprised you say that about the trout here. I can usually catch trout year all spring and summer.

Springville closes for all species on September 30 and reopens on the statewide opener. No early trout season, no panfish prior to the statewide opener. I hope you check your regulations before heading out next time.

When can you actually fish it and is it worth the trouble?

I don't understand why you can't ice fish here. I understand it's considered a trout stream but you can't catch a trout in here a week into the season anyways. I don't know who makes the rules but I hope the person that does reads this.

Musky Madness...Springville Pond is located right off of Post Road, in Plover. Next to the Springville Wharf resturant.

That website is not up to date. I forget where they had recent stocking information but it shows that it was stocked this year. If you look at other lakes in the area, the recent fish stockings aren't shown on that database either.
