Can anyone point my in the directions of some ponds to fish in that area?
I can't help you with any ponds, but I will say Dingmans on the Delaware River is one great spot to fish in the spring for shad, and later in the season a really great spot to fish for smallies on the Delaware River.
If you have a boat or kayak there's a really great launch at Dingmans. A good float would be to launch at up at Milford and float down to Dingmans. Also you should have no problem finding some wade fishing there.
