Q.Were are the hot ponds? A.East of the Saginaw River The entrance to the Hot-Ponds has almost disappeared since the low water.
Only when the wind blows from the North can a regular boat have a safe chance to get into the ponds. Otherwise, one foot depth at it's mouth is the norm.
Used to get to the ponds quit easy by launching and going down the Jones Road Ditch/boat launch. That virtually dried up as well.
Now most people park at the end of Jones and walk or ride their 4 wheelers to the entrance and fish from shore or wade. (Jones road is in Essexville, once at the end of the Jones road ditch/canal go west approximately 1/4 mile)
