I've decided to make Butterfield Pond our first remote pond trip of 2013. The short hike and hopefully hungry trout will make for a great first experience for the boys. I remind myself that it is my goal to make great memories with them and not to frustrate them.
Lake Solitude is a much longer hike then I expected. It's a 2-3 hour hike. For two young boys, this may prove to be too much right now. But, Lake Solitude remains on my list of remote trout ponds.
The stream leading out of the pond is crystal clear and I'm sure there are native brook trout in it. We shall see soon!
