Thomas Pond

Alyssas's Motel overlooks idyllic Thomas Pond.
"Our Pond" is wonderful for family boating & fishing.

Free use of canoe and paddleboat on 442 acre crystal clear Thomas Pond. The waterfront is only steps away from
every guest room, our spacious lawn is gently sloping, and nicely grassed, so the waterfront is easily accessible to all.
We encourage guests to sit in our chairs by the waterfront, or stroll out onto our dock, and enjoy the Lakes Region at its finest!

Principal fishery: Brook trout, landlocked salmon, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass,  chain pickerel, and white perch.

Thomas Pond is well suited for both coldwater and warmwater fisheries management. Shallow weedy coves, rocky shorelines, and a large forage base provide the necessary requirements to support a quality bass and pickerel fishery.

In addition, the pond has enough cold well-oxygynated water to support a good trout and salmon population. Smelts provide a forage base for the salmon. An abundant white perch population provides competition for both the trout and the bass, however, the large average size of the perch attracts many anglers to the pond.

The outlet of Thomas Pond drains directly into Sebago Lake, therefore, any fish stocked in Thomas Pond have the potential to drop down into Sebago. Consequently, the brown trout management program was discontinued many years ago in order to reduce potential conflicts with Sebago's landlocked salmon.

The public access to Thomas Pond is located near the outlet on RT. 302 at the Raymond Casco town line. Access is limited to small boats due to low clearance under the Rt. 302 bridge. It is necessary to travel upstream in order to reach the main lake.

Liberal regulations are in effect on bass. General law regulations apply on all other species both summer and winter.
