Fishing the Ponds of Wintergreen
Horse Pond is one of the shallower ponds with a summertime maximum depth of 8.5 feet. Accessibility is good. The fishing for both Bass and Bluegill on Horse Pond is good.
Access to Horse Pond: Park off Monocan Drive on the grass above and away from the white picket fence where horses are kept by the homeowner. Walk down to the 3.5 acre pond on the right-hand side of the fence line and left side of the pond.
One can fish in several open areas on the right, then continue walking to the dam where one can fish the entire length of the dam.
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.
