Newark Pond

Newark Pond Road Newark, VT, 05871 Phone:

The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department owns an access area near the north end of the pond. You can either cast from the access area or from the shoulder of the road. You can also fish from the road shoulder at the dry hydrant, further south. If you have a boat, you can launch one at the access area.
Species: Smallmouth bass and yellow perch are abundant in this pond. The pond is stocked with trout, but when the water gets warm in summer, they go deeper, and you can't catch them from shore.
Directions: From Lyndonville, head north on Route 5. In West Burke, turn right onto Route 5A. After 0.8 miles, turn right onto Newark Street. Travel on Newark Street for about 5.8 miles, and turn left onto Newark Pond Road. The pond is another 1.4 miles.
