Location: Weinberg-King State Fish and Wildlife Area is located in Schuyler County, 3 miles east of Augusta north of Route 101. There are two ponds on this site that are managed for sport fishing. Pond #2 is the smaller of the two ponds.

Description: This fertile, 1 acre pond is surrounded by the equestrian campground. In past years this pond has supported a desirable sport fishery. Bank anglers can access the entire shoreline of the pond.

History and Status of the Sport Fishery: In 2019, this pond experienced a significant summer kill due to low oxygen. The pond will be surveyed in 2020 to evaluate the status of the fishery.
