Hope you have a good trip.

I get frustrated taking my kids fishing up there. Seems like it's 90% fly fishing only on the small ponds up there, only a couple swampy ones are open to all methods. My 7 year old son loves fishing and can't understand why we can't fish in all of the great looking ponds. We usually just end up hitting a few small brooks.

Tell him those ponds and fish are for old out of state folks with dry flies. He'll understand. :D

Nice fish!!

I took my son to that pond a couple weeks ago. He was skunked fishing from shore.
yeah the left side (looking at pic) is a lot deeper and much more accessible with a kayak. I have had good luck there over the years.
