Hurds Lake in Somers/Old Camp Aya Po
« on: Jan 12, 2022, 10:21 AM »
I can't find anything on this water body in the Angler's Guide.  The property is owned by the Town of Somers.  I've found some information put out by the town that fishing and "passive non-motorized recreational activity is allowed but can't find anything on ice fishing specifically, or open/closed seasons.  Anyone know anything about this place?

Yes Iíve fished it several times. Never ice fished it though. I was on it this summer and got skunked, talked to a guy who was walking around the neighborhood and he told me there was a fish kill there in 2019. Might take some time to recover.

Fish there a lot this past summer and did well on some good size bass and catfish. Plenty of perch, blue gills and pickerel too. Ice fished there last year once and got a few perch and pickerel on tip ups and jig

It gets a decent amount of pressure during the summer. I've iced it in the past with mixed success. It's close to home and usually freezes quick so I'll go there sometimes to get the cobwebs off my gear
The BIG one is just one flag away!

Species caught : largemouth, smallmouth,  bluegill, perch, White perch, crappie, trout, catfish, bowfin, pickerel, pike

Yeah, that's pretty much exactly what I'm looking for.  I'm heading up north in a few weeks so looking to make one or two shakedown trips before then, and I'd like to get the kids out and hopefully they get bitten by the bug as well...which means more excuses for me to get out.

For those that are not familiar with Hurds, it is not a lake. It is a pond that is under 20 acres.
I plan to live forever. So far so good!

Lots of 11-13 inch pickerel in the pond. I have only caught dink bass too. It has good days and bad days. Itís not deep, I ice fish it a few times a year with the kids. Easy to get on/off with them when they were younger
