— DEC plans to improve the parking area near the dam, construct an access site for launching small car-top boats and install a fishing pier on Palmer Pond. Once completed, the public will be able to fish the 28-acre pond by boat.

English Brook

English Brook is located along Somerville Road the Town of Warrensburg, Warren County. A 0.4 mile section of the brook which contains brook trout is open to public fishing. DEC stocks this water which is west of Route 9 between the communities of Warrensburg and Lake George.

Parking is available near all these waters but is limited at this time. DEC will work this summer to develop and sign additional parking areas.

More information on the sections of water now open to the public including descriptions, directions and maps can be found on the DEC website at: www.dec.ny.gov/lands/71954.html.

This web page will be updated when parking areas, access trails and boat launch site improvements are completed and when the additional sections are open for public fishing.
