Elevation: 643 feet
Area: 28 acres
Shoreline Length: 1 mile
Max Depth: 21 feet
Town: Mendon


Shoreline access within Monroe County's Mendon Ponds Park, located on NYS Route 65. There is a hand launch site on Douglas Road for Deep Pond.

Fish Species:

Northern Pike, Chain Pickerel, Brown Bullhead, Rock Bass, Pumpkinseed, Bluegill, Largemouth Bass, Black Crappie, Yellow Perch. Last surveyed in 2003.


There is Sunfish and Yellow Perch fishing through the ice when safe ice develops. Largemouth Bass, Chain Pickerel, Brown Bullhead, Sunfish, and Yellow Perch can be caught during the open water season. A spinnerbait or stickbait, like a rapala, works well in shallow weedy water, for the gamefish. For the panfish try worms fished under a bobber or small plastic tube baits or twister tails.

Aquatic Vegetation:

Deep Pond, a unique glacially formed pond, has fairly steep sided, rocky shorelines which limit aquatic vegetation to shallow areas near the shoreline that contain a rich mixture of native aquatic plants.


Statewide fishing regulations apply (leaving DEC website to official Fishing Regulations Guide vendor website).
