Fishing the Ponds of Wintergreen
Access to Deer Pond: Fish this pond either by parking off of Monocan Drive and then walking down the narrow easement to the upper part of the pond, or by walking from Grassy Pond following the footpath on the left through the wooded area to Deer Pond’s dam. The banks are steep on the fishing easement on the Sawmill Creek side of Deer Pond. This makes fishing mostly limited to the area of the dam on the lower end of the pond or the small access area off Monocan Drive at the upper end of the pond.
Deer Pond is good to fish for large Bluegill from the dam where you can reach deeper water either using worms or small artificial baits. There are also Bass here.
There are twelve fishable ponds or small lakes located within Wintergreen's Stoney Creek.*
These ponds and lakes are the property of the Wintergreen Property Owners Association. They can be fished by property owners and their accompanied guests using the designated WPOA easements. Some ponds are more easily accessible than others. (See map here for location of all of the ponds.)
Guidelines for those fishing the ponds include being considerate of homeowners' landscaping, staying off private docks, and not leaving litter. In short, be a good neighbor.

* Three ponds in Stoney Creek are not listed here. One is Lake Monocan, which is owned by Wintergreen Resort. The other two are small ponds that are impractical for fishing due to their location on the golf course–one near the entrance to Stoney Creek off Route 151 and Monocan Drive, and another pond on the first fairway of the Tuckahoe nine-hole course between Stoney Creek East and Cedar Glen Close.
