North Pond Professional Review and Guide

"North Pond is a shallow, weedy 2,115-acre lake featuring easy access. Some fishing from shore is possible, but a canoe or boat is best. The daily limit on pike is one fish, with a 24-inch minimum length. From October 1 through November 30, all landlocked salmon, lake trout, and bass must be released alive at once. Campgrounds are located in Belgrade Lakes Village and Norridgewock, and motels are available in Waterville.

Beginning in late April or early May, anglers using worms, night crawlers, or minnows take schooling white perch from shore near the inlet, just off Maine Route 8 in Smithfield. After the perch runs fade, large-mouth bass fishing and pike fishing come to the front. North Pond produces some of the largest bass in the state. Plastic worms are a favorite lure. Use 8-inch worms rather than the standard 6-inch variety."
