Massachusetts pond maps

Explore Massachusetts lakes and ponds! MassWildlife’s pond maps provide bathymetry (pond depth), shore and boat access, and the types of fish found in the water body. Use this page to search by map or by list.

How it works: Click on any of the dots on the map for a pdf map and write-up. Locations with a yellow border indicate ponds with digital bathymetry. Zoom in close to see bathymetry drawn on map. You can use this map in real time to see bathymetry when walking on shore or in a boat.

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.
