Jones Pond, Osgood Pond & River

Good amount of water in this system still. Jones pond outlet has a lot of lily pads at beginning to get through, but once clear, its an easy paddle to the outlet, across Osgood Pond, then down to the old log & stone dam on the Osgood River. Only had to get out of kayak once on return to Jones Pond to get over a shallow beaver dam remnant. Surprised that I did not run into any boats on Osgood pond, seemed really quiet for a Saturday, just a couple guys fishing on the Osgood river and a few people on Jones outlet on my return. Nice ~11-12 mile paddle from Jones campground and back. If water level drops on Jones outlet much, paddlers will have to contend with several logs just under the surface though.

Did you see a lean-to by the outlet of Osgood Pond? Some maps show one there, I think on the east shore maybe a short distance down river. Never been able to get out there myself to verify if there is one there or not.

Never any amount of boat traffic on Osgood, only a few camps and they seem to be seldom occupied. Besides, there on that pond for the solitude too. Was up ther a few weeks ago, mid week for several hours and was the only boat (guideboat in this case) on the water.

Outlet leanto

I did not notice any lean-to near the outlet. There was a large section of wood, almost looked like a big door, lying on the shore in the bushes near the Jones pond outlet on Osgood. Was that the remnants of said lean-to?
Also noticed a bird box mounted to a tree on the Jones pond outlet that had a circular opening about the size of a frisbee. What kind of bird occupies that?

Wood duck boxes should only have a 5" to 6" oval opening. Frisbee size is HUGE! Maybe a coon ripped it open to get at the eggs.
