in this heat, i wouldn't waste time on anywhere that you're not sure of... if there are fish they're probably sluggish and hard to catch and getting skunked is no fun and down the road you might not go back because of that.
i think i may have met you, btw... down at the lake off of pleasant valley
I've passed that pond a million times. Years ago, just out of curiosity, I took a pole and some crawlers and fished it for an hour. I caught some small bass, but the dink gills would usually end up with most of the bait.
