Fishing the Ponds of Wintergreen
Long Pond is the largest of all Stoney Creek's ponds at 5 acres in surface size. This is also the deepest pond on the north side of Stoney Creek with water depths reaching 15 feet. Bass, Bluegill, and Crappie all reside in this pond. Walking along the sides of the pond leading to Duck Pond, or walking to the rear of the pond, you can find numerous openings that have been cut into the vegetation to accommodate fishing.
Access to Long Pond: Vehicles can drive to this pond on the grass and dirt road near 422 Rodes Valley Drive. Park near the dry hydrant and walk to the left to fish the rear area of the pond, or walk to the right side of the pond to fish its upper reaches. Do not fish on the far side of the pond where that are the backyards of private homes and no easements.
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.
