When you fish at Lyndon Fishing Pond, the regular rules don’t apply. You don’t need a fishing license, and there’s no limit on how many fish you can catch! On the other hand, we do have a few rules of our own to ensure the health of our rainbow trout and the satisfaction of our visitors.

Fly fishing

We offer bait fishing and fly fishing. Bait fishing is you-catch-it-you-keep-it, to maintain the integrity of our pond and the health of our fish.

If you are using a fly rod then you can catch-and-release back to the pond. For fly fishing, minimum six-lb. test, recommended for eight-lb plus is best and barbless hooks are required.

We provide free worms

The only bait that is allowed in the pond is worms. We strive to maintain the cleanest and most bio-secure pond possible. We cannot allow roe/spawn or any baitfish in the pond. Worms are included in your cost of admission.

Bring your own fishing poles or rent one from us
