The Dayton Pond (formerly the Dayton Juvenile Pond) is now open for juveniles and anglers with a disability license or designated harvester card. The pond is listed as open year-round, but current management is to maintain water in the pond from near March 1 to the middle of July. The pond is nearly dry until the river intake pipe is set in place and the pump is turned on. Some years the water intake is not put in place until mid March, especially if the river is high.
The pond will be stocked shortly after the pump is started and water is flowing into the pond (usually by early to mid March). This pond is stocked with catchables (10-12 inches), jumbo size (14 inch or larger) Rainbow Trout, plus it will usually receives a few additional large rainbows or Brown Trout. The pond is stocked several times between late February and mid June.
