Smile Fish coal mine pits

I live around several coal mine stripper pits and this lady loves to fly fish. Anyone else fly fish small ponds or coal mine pits? It's a lot of fun. Can't wait for warm weather to get back on the water with my fly rod and reel.

Welcome to the forum.

I do plenty of small pond flyfishing during the warmer months of the year. Keep an eye out in the Warmwater sections below. We post fly recipes to the archive and keep each other abreast of the fishing during the year.

After dealing with 20 inches of snow at my house yesterday, I'm ready for some pond fishing.

Welcome to the forum!

Most of the pits I know of aren't the best fishing holes because they're too sterile, i.e. not too many weeds or other structure.

Coal Mine stripper pits

Sullivan Green State Forrest in southern Indiana was founded in 1936 and has over 120 fishing pits, it has the best fishing in Indiana. These pits have been here so long that sometimes it is hard to get your boat around for the weeds, but it makes for good fishing. Please come and try these fishing pits you will be amazed, also they stock trout in some of them www.in.gov/dnron left of page click on destinations, forests, scroll down and click Sullivan-Green State Foest.

Hope things warm up for you soon.

It looks like we dodged that bullet here in the NE this time. Just a few flurries on the drive from CT to MA this morning.

I'm hope to get out on the Hudson in the Kayak this w/e. Dry suit and thermal layers are the order of the day this time of year but that first trip out is always a bit special.
