The well-named Fishing Brook is in a lovely area which is mostly wild. The brook trout fishing is so good you might want to keep it a secret.
From Newcomb follow Route 28N west toward Long Lake. Continue for 9.5 miles to the access site on the right. Look for a DEC sign. Follow this short gravel road down to the parking lot. There is a bridge and dam here creating a small pond upstream.
Shoreline fishing is very good here, up and downstream. The small pond that has been created upstream from the small dam makes for some fantastic brook trout fishing. Heading downstream the fish are much smaller and harder to catch, but that doesn't stop it from being a popular spot.
