Douglas Pond

Douglas Pond Professional Review and Guide

"Douglas Pond is a natural pond enhanced by a small dam on the Sebasticook River. Much of the pond is part of the Madawaska Marsh Game Management Area, set aside primarily as duck and fish breeding habitat. Because this water is popular with fishermen, you will not paddle alone here, but few people actually paddle back into the marsh itself, where you will find acres of solitude.

There are acres and acres of cattails, rushes, and pickerelweed as the channel broadens out into the shallow pond. Except perhaps in late summer, you should be able to paddle way back into the marsh, where you are likely to see wood duck, muskrat, pickerelweed, arrowhead, great blue heron, and red-winged blackbirds—to mention only a few."
