Fishing

New York State has some of the finest fishing in the country. With more than 7,500 lakes and ponds, 70,000 miles of rivers and streams, and hundreds of miles of coastline, fishing opportunities are always nearby!

At Godfrey’s Pond, we offer in the big pond: Large and Small Mouth Bass, Pike, and Sunfish. In the Trout Pond: Palamino, Brook and Brown Trout and Sunfish. Happy fishing!

Join us for the Paul Wood Fishing Contest scheduled for Sunday, August 4 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. This event will include activities such as casting contests, largest fish caught from several categories of fish and all around fun and camaraderie! Paul was an active outdoorsman and served in many capacities in his 54 years of service on the Executive Board of Directors. He was a key member of the group that began the Pheasant Hunting Preserve, served as our representative to the Genesee County Federation of Sportsman’s Clubs, chaired the Pond Improvement committee for decades and more! He passed away in January of 2012.

The Pond follows normal New York State Fishing Rules and Regulations so a Fishing License is required to fish at Godfrey’s Pond. Below is a link to the NYS Department of Conservation where it addresses the licenses:
