Easy access makes Garfield Pond a popular place for area adults to teach their young anglers how to fish for trout.

ELBERTON - Some of the best juvenile fishing in the county can be found at Garfield Pond, located along Elberton Road between Colfax and Garfield.

Tucked away among the pines of Silver Creek, Garfield Pond is reachable via an access road 2 miles northeast of the Elberton ghost town.

The pond's 0.5 acre pool is stocked regularly with rainbow trout open to aspiring anglers ages 14 and younger. Because of this, the pond's grassy banks are where many local youngsters cut their teeth in the fishing world.

Picnic tables and shade can also be found along the water's edge.
