      About Great Herring Pond

      Life on the Water

      Great Herring Pond is a critical component of the Buzzard Bay Watershed, as it supports one of the best herring runs in the state. Herring spawn in this pond, then move into Cape Cod Canal, attracting striped bass.

      A ramp is available for residents to get onto the water off Sandy Pond Road. This unpaved launch is best suited for kayaks and other car-top craft, but larger boats can be launched with a four-wheel-drive vehicle.

      Once on the water, cast a line! Anglers should expect to catch largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, chain pickerel, yellow perch, white perch, brown bullhead, sunfish, golden shiner, white sucker, and eel.
