NJ Manny's Pond, Hoffman Park
Marker Description: Location:
Hoffman Park is located in Union Township, Hunterdon County, west of Clinton and just south of Interstate 78. The main parking area is at 26 Baptist Church Road, Hampton 08827. The gate is open from 9:00 AM to sunset. A second parking lot is located at 751 Mechlin Corner Road, Hampton 08827.

Directions:

From Route 78 proceed on Baptist Church Road under a railroad bridge and shortly thereafter turn left into the park entrance, which is marked by a large brown sign.

Five of the park’s 32 ponds offer good fishing for bass (catch and release only) and sunfish. Anglers can concentrate their efforts at the pond along Crow’s Road or at Manny’s Pond, both of which have an open bank suitable for fly-casting. Manny’s Pond is the largest pond in the park. Manny’s Pond is stocked with trout. Fishermen need and have to display a
trout stamp in order to keep the fish. Otherwise,
the fish must be released.

Fished today which was a stocking day at the pond was there about 5:00 p.m. and there were about seven other people there old timers and parents with little children and a fishing couple, it is pretty in the park and the lack of trees and mowed and paved paths really gives you that park feel - no wilderness pond environ - but nice - the water was a bit murky - one guy had two and a few people caught one while I was there - I walked around the whole pond a nd got one strike and one fish, a nice bow that fought great. Not a place I would go back unless I wanted to hang out in the sun with little kids.
