North Fork Pound Reservoir

Pound Lake is a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers lake that was built in 1966. The impoundment covers 154 surface acres, and includes 13.5 miles of wooded shoreline. Ownership of the land surrounding the lake was transferred to the U.S. Forest Service in 1983.

Pound Lake offers fishing for largemouth, smallmouth and spotted bass, as well as bluegills, black and white crappie, channel and flathead catfish and carp. Walleye and muskies are also present, but in lower numbers.

To get to the lake, take Route 23 to Pound; turn west onto Route 630. Follow Route 630 for a mile to the boat landing.
