Bill Mansfield, a Life Long Lake Monitor for the Maine Volunteer Lake Monitors Program these past ten years, conducts all the testing and Coffee Pond's water quality is absolutely EXCELLENT! This is one of the Sebago Lakes Region's most popular lakes because of its water quality.
Anglers are delighted with Coffee Pond. It's managed for cold and warm water species. Brook trout are stocked annually. The pond holds 10 to 12-inch hatchery brookies from late April into June, when the water begins to warm. Small and largemouth bass plus pickerel are also caught here. The excellent smelt population provides forage for both the trout and bass. Special regulations do exist for the brook trout, bass and smelt. Fishermen should check the law books presented by the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.
Sunapee Trout, named for Lake Sunapee in New Hampshire, were stocked in Coffee Pond from 1969 until at least 1974 as part of the management plan to increase the range of this species.
Great swimming, boating, kayaking and fishing are among the activities lakefront homeowners and vacationers will enjoy along the shores of Coffee Pond. The pond is small and peaceful, making it one of the areas most popular. Camp Cedar, a residential summer camp for boys, is nestled along the wooded shoreline.
If you are looking for a quiet location for a seasonal or year-round home, look no more. Let the pristine waters of Coffee Pond charm you.
Coffee Pond is closed to winter fishing. During the rest of the year, boaters and anglers should note that access is limited to canoes, kayaks and small boats at a small, unimproved landing adjacent to the outlet.
