Anyone heard of recent info on White's Pool. I have heard and read about year round opportunities to wet a line and maybe have productive winter fishing there. Any Suffolk Co. guys out there with such knowledge. Thanks and Merry Christmas to all.

It is an extremely small area with only room for a few anglers and most people have decided not to mention it much on these posts as it draws a crowd that makes it unfishable.

I fished it once last winter, as I'm home from college for the month, and we fish yr. round for trout upstate. I was NOT impressed with whites pool. I saw a couple perch and tiny....TINY....brown trout. I jigged tipped with fresh eggs, grubs, worms and a fly under weight. Also jigged silver and gold spoon and not a bite. I got into one brown trout below the main road towards the bull on a stick bait, but thats the stream, not pool. WATCH THE TIDES!!!!

White's Pool depends largely on what is stocked there....and they don't last long. I've had day's with lots of 6" - 7" trout along with little perch and sunnies. Last spring I got about 7 14" brown trout within an hour and nothing else.

What is really fun is the "very rare" sea run trout.

DEFINITELY A BROWN. Depending on the time of year they are different color...ranging from very pale and boring looking to bright brown/red/almost orange. Some good looking trout I catch up in Central NY where I'm in college.

Brown trout

First off that first picture is definately a brown trout, most likely a leftover from the previous years stocking. Second, those are really nice and healthy looking trout cowboy. Some of them might be natives as well.
