For more information on this launch including Google Maps driving directions, visit the Boat Launch Sites for Essex County page.

Fish Species:

Lake trout, brook trout, landlocked salmon, rainbow trout, brown bullhead, and smallmouth bass.


Fly fishing for rainbow trout can also be great in early spring, just don't be surprised if you catch a lot of smallmouth bass as well. The pond is known to produce some large natural lake trout.

Ice Fishing:

Ice fishing is prohibited.


Special regulations apply. See the Freshwater Fishing Regulation Guide (PDF).

Fisheries Management:

Moose Pond is stocked annually with rainbow trout and landlocked salmon. Brood stock salmon are also stocked some years and provide an excellent early season opportunity.
