Lost Pond

Physical Features:

Elevation: 643 feet
Area: 1 acre
Shoreline Length: 0.1 miles
Town: Mendon

Aquatic Plant Life:

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

Access:

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

Fish Species:

Northern Pike, Chain Pickerel, Brown Bullhead, Rock Bass, Pumpkinseed, Bluegill, Largemouth Bass, Black Crappie, Yellow Perch

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 panfish, try worms fished under a bobber, small plastic tube baits or twister tails. When safe ice develops, there are ice fishing opportunities for sunfish and yellow perch.

Ice Fishing:

Ice fishing is permitted on Lost Pond.

Regulations:

Statewide Fishing Regulations Apply.
