Massachusetts pond maps

Pond maps have been updated for ice fishing season! Use the map to find locations that have detailed digital bathymetry (depth) information. If you’re fishing on one of the 168 ponds with digital bathymetry, you can use your mobile device to access a pond map and see this depth information in real time as you walk.

How it works: Zoom to a location on the map below, then click on one of the blue dots to view more information. Locations with a yellow border indicate ponds with digital bathymetry. Zoom in close to see it on the map.

More info

  • All ponds on this list allow public access. Pond maps show approximate boundaries and depth.
  • Don’t forget your fishing license. Buy online at MassFishHunt or at a license vendor.

  • Bathymetry. MassWildlife adds new bathemetric maps each season. These new maps provide 100 times more precision than the original maps. You can use Bathymetric maps to target different depths and habitats within a pond. For example, bass prefer steep drop-offs and plateaus, while trout spend time in deeper, colder water. Anglers who ice fish or fish from shore will find these maps useful when personal depth finders cannot be used.

  • If you can't find the pond you're looking for, contact the town recreation department or local conservation commission. In some cases, MassWildlife District offices may have information on ponds that aren't listed.

  • Go to Mass.gov/go-fish-here for even more fishing information.
