Details:Went to Houghton's Pond early Sat morning to my usual spot and it was clean. Returned yesterday afternoon and it was littered with beer cans, trash and a bunch of fishing string. There are trash containers everywhere or do as I do take your $hit back with you. Stuff like this is what gives us fishermen a bad rap at local ponds, etc.

Trash sux! Had a nice pond on a farmers land shut down because the farmer was tired of the beer cans, fishing gear and D&D all over the place. Just try and do my part and pick up what I can.

I actually have found that Houghton's Pond is relatively clean and not littered with trash. It would be a wonderful place to fish without the foreigners on the beach near the far side of the pond cranking their stereos and ruining the whole quiet pond scene.

I really want to go at night with my cast net and fill up buckets of trout to use as live bait...

CPL MC: We're probably neighbors. PM me if you want to get on some other fish.

No self-respecting fisherman would visit that place.

That's not a nice comment on my part... No real offense meant.

I really wish 'our' fish and game folks would put money into better stocking programs (Herring restoration, Pike, Channel Cats).

I loathe trout stocking. I won't buy a license because I could give a flying f*ck about the 10 ponds they stock.

I always bring a bag with me and try to pick some trash....Beer cans, plastic bottles, etc but the worst thing you can leave is fishing line. Clean up after yourself and take a lil extra.

Nice Fish. I find that the more easily accessible a pond is, then the more trash there is. Generally, the "trashy" people don't like to hike. At Spot Pond, I find the most trash around the shore near the parking lot. So annoying....

I caught my limit in 40 min early Sat morning, I was there at 6:15. I haven't seen the white bucket brigade this season yet but I know who you are talking about.

It tends to be the white bucket brigade who ruins that place.

I was at Houghtons Saturday afternoon - got skunked except for a cpl of Blue Gills. Met a guy in the parking lot who said he killed it.
How people leave trash around kills me - I put it down to badly rared..if you leave trash, you probably come from trash.
