Fishing at Corcoran Pond

June 13, 2012

Corcoran Pond in Waterville Valley is stocked with fish and a fun place to drop a line.

Fly or cast fishing is allowed for all ages per NH Fish & Game regulations.  Anyone over the age of 16 must have a valid New Hampshire fishing license, which can be purchased at the Waterville Valley Recreation Department on Noon Peak Road (a valid state-issued ID is required).

The resort community encourages “catch and release,” but anglers may take the legal limit (for tout, that is five fish or five pounds).

    Is there ice fishing at Corcoran Pond?

    • Jan Stearns says:

      Good question! I would assume not because the ski area draws water from the pond for snowmaking (which I assume may make the ice surface unstable).
      That said, I will ask around and get back to you here! Thanks for stopping by.

      I just heard back from the Town of Waterville Valley – owners of Corcoran Pond. The Town Manager’s response:
      “We do not allow ice fishing on Corcoran Pond. There is moving water from Snow’s Brook which makes the thickness of the ice variable. Also, the ski area pulls water out of the pond for snow making and this creates voids under the ice and adds to the variableness of the ice thickness. We put up signs warning people that the ice is unsafe and tells them to stay off the ice.”
