Mill Pond, Setauket
Mill Pond, Setauket, is a small shallow impoundment located just south of Conscience Bay and just north of Old Field Road in Setauket. The pond is surrounded by a landscaped park and arboretum. Abundant bluegills make Mill Pond, Setauket a good place to take a child fishing in the spring. By summer, abundant aquatic plants make the fishing more difficult but the pond has produced some decent largemouth bass for anglers capable of fishing the weedbeds (PDF) (* 174 KB)
