Pierce Pond and Upper Pierce Pond Professional Review and Guide
"Pierce Pond is very deep, with a cold, well-oxygenated substratum, making this an excellent cold-water fishery and bringing a fair number of fishermen to its shores. But because it is out of the way and has more than 2.5 square miles of surface area, you can paddle in relative solitude here. Beautiful forested hillsides surround both ponds, with conifers dominating the eastern shore and mixed conifers and deciduous trees sharing the western shore. Heavily forested islands lend a scenic quality, especially to the northern section of Pierce Pond and to Upper Pierce Pond.
The islands break up the view of open water, making the ponds seem deceptively small. Lots of beautiful boulders poke up everywhere, especially guarding channels going up the right side of the middle and northern sections of Pierce Pond and in Upper Pierce Pond. The huge number of these rocks, some barely submerged, belie the depths under the open water. Prominent fish species: salmon and brook trout. Fishing is with artificial lures only, with a twelve-inch minimum length on trout."
