Farm Pond is a great place for beginner anglers in the Framingham area. This pond is pretty shallow but has substantial vegetation and fish habitat. This pond will allow you to practice the skills that will translate to bigger bodies of water. New to kayak fishing? Bring out your kayak and launch it to work on your setup. Practice on this smaller pond before making your way to the larger reservoirs. Not a ton of pressure on this pond which will allow you to practice different techniques. Distinctly different types of structure helps with that as well. You probably won’t pull out a monster but I haven’t been skunked yet. Largemouth Bass and Chain Pickerel are prevalent with Yellow Perch scattered in. Parking is limited but I’ve never seen it full. Plenty of fishable shoreline on the West side. Great place for kids and beginner anglers.
Jamaica Pond is known for it’s Brook, Brown and Rainbow Trout population (as stocked by Masswildlife) it is also home to a variety of freshwater fish species. This includes Largemouth Bass, Chain Pickerel, Yellow Perch, Blue Gill, and Pumpkinseed Sunfish. Broodstock Salmon are also stocked when available. Being a glacially formed “kettle hole” pond, it is quite deep for it’s 68 acre size, averaging 25ft with a 53ft deepest hole. Pretty outstanding for a city pond! It can get crowded as it is in Boston, with a heavily used paved walking path all the way around. (I prefer more secluded spots personally.) Still giving Jamaica Pond 5 stars because you couldn’t ask for better freshwater fishing just 2 1/2 miles from Fenway Park.
15 million catch locations, advanced fishing maps and depth charts from Navionics- all the fishing intel you need to start fish smarter and catch more.
