Sandy Pond

Sandy Pond is the largest embayment in the Eastern Lake Ontario Dune and Wetland Area, a 17-mile long coastal barrier system. Tucked behind the dunes, the pond provides a productive year-round fishery. Sandy Pond made the national spotlight when the 2006 Cabela’s Masters Walleye Circuit Tournament was won on its water. Along with walleye, gamefish include northern pike, smallmouth and largemouth bass. Panfish include yellow perch, bluegill, pumpkinseed sunfish, black crappie, white perch and bullhead. Carp are also found in the pond. Sandy Pond is a great ice fishing spot and derbies are held on many weekends throughout the winter.
