Fished the mill pond with Stealthbimmer over the weekend, he had a bit or two in the hours that we were out there. Needless to say I think the carp over ran the place.

Isn't there a public rightaway to get on this lake? Keep your feet wet, then portage if during open water? Or, if Ice fishing, walk into the creek and hop onto the ice near the dam? I understand a person could get upset if you are clearly on his land and beyond the borders of the public rightaway, but there has to be a legal way to walk onto the water, right? Nobody owns the water or the rightaway.

i cant say ive ever fished the pond i know a few people who have and usually catch lotsof pike and bass rite off shore.... what i can say is this pondis being ruined by the onemillion carp that are in there...i bow fish this pond alot for carp in the summer and u cant go 5 feet with out seeing 10carp.... i have never seen any other type of fish while im out there tho which suprises me... if your looking for a good pond to fish try waterville or henrietta riteby waterville..

another thing theres no easy way to get in the pond... you can take a john boat or canoe down the creek that is by generac on 59 .... or you can park by the damn... ive carried my boat in a launched off the grassy shore there and never had a problem... but i know that some guy ownes it and gets mad when u walk on his grass.. .. dunno if this helps anyone... but good luck fishin

I just gotta chime in here...been looking for a good spot to take my kids and thought I would check reports on a place I used to go as a kid...never got in the pond (did not know how and still don't), but used to wade the creek which came out of that millpond and caught mixed bags of stuff in whatever holes I could find. Now I come to read that the pond was this UNBELIEVABLY INCREDIBLE TROPHY FISHERY and got overfished??? I am no expert, but I ain't an extreme rockhead either. You take Delavan, Fox, beaver Dam, Monona/Mendota/Waubesa, etc. , etc. on down the line of hammered lakes and they still produce. you mean to tell me that this Millpond has been overfished? Who on earth even ever heard of it, but for a handful of guys and it got fished out? It almost makes me want to go and check it out again just to see for myself. Sounds a little "fishy" to me. Since this is such an unvisited thread I will post a deercam photo which won't ever git seen.

bye Y'all

I got a buddy that fishes the Millpond all the time and I'm not sure what "5 o'clock somewhere" is talking about. Last year he got numerous Pike between 32-37 inches and he mounted a 23in LM. He hasn't fished for gills and crappie yet because the bass and Pike are a little more entertaining...but I would assume if you did some homework you could find em.

Ahh, Saylesville Millpond! Cant believe there is a thread about it. Fished there for many years and have watched it decline to almost nothing. There are some very "fishy" things that went on there. I could go on and on about how many great memories I had in the river and in the pond - catching amazing fish and lots of them............those days are gone. It is very sad because that place was kept a pretty good secret for a long time, but it is not what it once was. The white house next to the road is owned by an older man who will stop at nothing to keep you off of his property. He also owns the dam ( he bought it from the dnr for $1 but under the conditions that it would be re-done and it was) If you go to spear carp and suckers - dont throw them on his property. That is why he became so mean to good, respectable fisherman.

There used to be tons of large northern, big bass, big bluegill, and gigantic crappie - all were easy to catch and tons of fun. The crappie were well over 15 inches and the bluegill were almost there. The river used to be loaded with crawfish - you can still catch an occasional catfish in the river but not in the lake. Opening day 1998 - 4 of us caught over 100 northern. Right now you would be lucky to catch 2 all day (and very small) The bass are all but gone and the panfish are not in there anymore. Its truly sad, but something happened and It will never be the same!

You will have better luck in the river. Good luck

Was out today for the first time on this pond. Took the river from Hwy 59 in with my kayak. Water was murky from the recent rains. Saw a ton of carp and caught one decent northern. Was difficult to stay in one spot as the wind blew me around. Will be nice once I get my anhor system hooked up. Northern caught on spinnerbait. Anyone else still go out here? I will likely head back out soon with the bow.
