Goose Pond. (Lee/Tyringham)

Goose Pond. (Lee/Tyringham)

 This 225-acre, coldwater mountain lake has a maximum depth of 46 feet and an average depth of approximately 18 feet. The water is infertile and crystal clear with a transparency of 17 feet. The bottom is composed of rubble and aquatic vegetation is extremely scant.

Public access is provided by a boat ramp (with parking lots) located on the southwestern shore just north of the pond’s outlet. To get there, take Forest Street south from Route 20 (just east of the turnpike interchange) about two miles. Forest Street changes to Goose Pond Road and the ramp is located on the north side of the road at the end of a short driveway.

At least eight fish species are known to be present here: largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, chain pickerel, red breasted sunfish, brown bullhead, tessellated darter, white sucker and rainbow smelt. In addition, the pond is stocked every spring and fall with catchable trout, mainly rainbows and browns.
 The pond is also stocked with broodstock salmon, and these fish will continue to be stocked on an annual basis whenever they are available.

This is a premier coldwater pond and it is managed primarily for salmonids. Abundant numbers of stocked trout and an adequate forage base translate into excellent trout fishing. The ability of this water to carry trout from year to year recently resulted in its designation as a special brown trout water with specific regulations designed to promote the production of big browns.
Starting in 1994, there is a limit of one brown trout per day with a minimum length of 15 inches (this does not affect the standard three trout limit, but only one of those trout can be a brown, and it must be at least 15 inches long).
The broodstock salmon are an added attraction at this pond. Ice fishing is can be slow at times, but sometimes results in a trophy.

While this pond is justifiably renowned for its salmonid fishery, don’t overlook the smallmouths. The largemouth fishery is also worthwhile.
