Town: Mendon

Access:

Shoreline access within Monroe County's Mendon Ponds Park, located on NYS Route 65.

Fishing:

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. There is sunfish and yellow perch fishing through the ice when safe ice develops.

This pond is a unique glacially formed pond. Lost 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.
