Seven Tree Pond is a 490-acre flow-through pond for the St. George River. The pond is set in the hilly farm country typical of this part of Maine. It receives annual stockings of brown trout, usually 400 to 500 fish from 10 to 14 inches long. Within two years of stocking, these fish can gain several pounds and reach lengths of 17 to 20 inches. The upper half of the pond is the shallow end, with depths from 5 to 20 feet; the north end is from 20 to 45 feet deep. The pond is mentioned in Come Spring, a historic novel about colonial life in Maine by Ben Ames Williams.
Ayer Park provides parking, picnicking, and a boat ramp. Special regulations include a fall fishing season from October 1 to November 30; all trout, landlocked salmon, lake trout, and bass are to be released alive at once. Seven Tree Pond is a good example of the Open Water Fishing Regulations booklet sometimes mentioning fish that do not exist in the body of water cited. Landlocked salmon and lake trout are not even found in Seven Tree Pond. For this reason, you should not rely on the regulations booklet as a guide to fish species in a given body of water. Key Species: brown trout, white perch, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, pickerel.
