Lincoln Pond holds a great population of bass and muskie in its waters.
Lincoln Pond is a very shallow and weedy pond, creating an ideal habitat for largemouth bass. The southern basin is the worst section for fishing. Spinnerbaits, surface lures, and plastic worms work well in the weedlines and openings in the weeds.
The pond also has a decent population of tiger muskie and smallmouth bass. Smallmouths will be in rocky areas and muskies are large and challenging to catch.
There is a DEC campground and launch with public access in the middle section of the pond. Note, swimming is closed at the campground for the season as of August 20, 2021.
