Fishing at Summer Village's Long-Sought-For-Pond
 
Summer Village at the Pond is located on the shores of beautiful Long-Sought-For-Pond.  This one hundred five acre spring-fed pond average twelve feet in depth and reaches a maximum depth of thirty feet.  The pond is generally stocked twice a year (both in the spring and the fall) with rainbow trout, brown trout, and/or brook trout by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Department of Fisheries and Wildlife. 
 
The pond is also known to support a diverse population of warm water species, including: carp, chain pickerel, black crappie, golden shiners, large mouth bass, small mouth bass, brown bullhead, bluegill, white perch, and yellow perch.  Please fish (with a legal Commonwealth of Massachusetts Fishing license) only from designated areas along the shore, and do not clean the fish in the lake or in common areas.  The Long-Sought-For-Pond Association treats the pond as needed for Milfoil and other invasive vegetation to preserve the life of the pond.  Notices are posted during treatment.
