Belleville Pond Professional Review and Guide
"A quiet paddle in a mostly undeveloped inland marsh habitat. Just a short distance inland from Wickford Harbor lies Belleville Pond, a 159-acre pond teeming with wildlife. The water is shallow—8 feet at its deepest and 5 feet on average—allowing biological productivity that supports a variety of bird and waterfowl species, as well as fish and painted turtles.
This is a great spot for fishing for bass, perch, and even alewives, which swim up the Annaquatucket River from Narragansett Bay to spawn. The waterfowl that gather here, including mallards, black ducks, wood ducks, and geese, are a draw for hunters. Be aware that hunting season starts in October; call ahead to get the exact dates."
