Fishing the Ponds of Wintergreen
Duck Pond holds a good population of Bass and Bluegill. The fishing from the dam is normally productive. This 2-plus acre pond is one of the shallower ponds in Stoney Creek with a maximum depth of 8 feet.
Access to Duck Pond: There are two ways to access Duck Pond.
From the West: Park off Monocan Drive near the Horse Pond and walk along the left side and keep going to reach Duck Pond to the right of the backyards of several homes. Walk close to the water of Duck Pond to stay within the easements.
From the East: Across from driveway of 422 Rodes Valley Drive, drive several hundred yards to Long Pond and park next to the stone dry hydrant. Facing Long Pond, walk up the right-hand-side of the pond to where it ends and continue walking along the maintained grass path until you reach the dam of Duck Pond. The easement here for fishing includes the entire length of the dam and along the water at the rear of the homes facing Rodes Valley Drive. Standing on the dam, facing the water, the left side of this pond does not have a easement as the homeowners property extends to the water's edge.
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.
