We followed the path upstream for a distance and even rock hopped for a bit. Unfortunately we didn't have any luck catching any fish so after about half a mile we turned back.
Our next stop was Cod Pond further north along Route 8. A large parking lot with a DEC sign is located near the trail head. The trail is fairly wide and easy to follow to a trail junction after about .2 mile. From there turn right and continue on. We spotted a red eft along the way.
My dad and I relaxed here, eating lunch and chatting. We tried fishing from here too but had no luck.
After getting skunked at our previous two stops we headed a bit further north to one of my dad's favorite fishing holes on the Boreas River. This proved to be our lucky spot, where we caught some brook trout and enjoyed the river.
These are the days that I love the best. Spending them in the outdoors with my dad.
