Unity Pond Professional Review and Guide
"This 2,528-acre lake is set in the midst of rolling farm country. Much of the lake is surrounded by marshes. Unity Pond is the largest lake in Waldo County, and though popular with local anglers, it is never crowded. Motels are available in Hampden and Bangor. Key Species: brown trout, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, white perch, pickerel, cusk, crappie.
Fishing index: Although Unity Pond receives annual stockings of brown trout, this species is largely underfished. May is the best month to find brown trout near the surface. Troll for browns during the day, using Mooselook Wobblers, live min-
nows, gray ghost streamers, Jerry’s smelt, and yellow perch streamers. Try dry flies in the evening. Use red quills, Hendricksons, caddis patterns, and dun variants. Look for brown trout near the shoreline at the southeast end of the pond and around the islands."
