    Has anyone ever fished trout lake which is by spring mill pond? It’s a 10-15 min hike through the woods and it’s beautiful. I don’t believe they stock it but I’m guessing there’s trout in there.

    To my knowledge there are no trout in there. HOWEVER there are some GIANT bass and gills in there. Buddy of mine says there's some nice perch in there however I have never seen any. During the spring it's well worth the hike to see the giant bass on beds... gl and let us know how u do

    I didn’t think there was because nobody talks about it. However I did see this.

    So not sure what to think. Seems like they put some decent ones in there but haven’t in a long time.

    Hmm, good find. I wasn't aware of that. Wonder what kind of #s survived.

    Was wondering that too. I wish they would’ve kept that a trout only lake. I’m also curious why they stopped stocking it?

    My guess is none.... DNR was feeding the bass.

    There's gotta be some holdovers, they stocked too many for there not to be.

    Sorry for the late reply, was out having shoulder surgery.

    I contacted dnr, they stated no trout stocking in the river. I also asked the park rangers and they said none. However a friends dad whom was 96, lived in Milford for 50 years and was a routine fisherman in that park, is the one that told me about fishing below the dam. He confirmed that the river did have trout but not how they got there. That'
    All I know.
