There is adequate room to fly cast from the boardwalk. The edges of the pond are muddy and heavily vegetated so the boardwalk is your best bet. Count on Bluegill and perhaps some bass. The boardwalk directly accesses deeper water so we can fish all depths of the pond. There is ample parking directly next to the pond.
