Tibbetts Pond

Project Description

Public access to Tibbetts Pond, a 5-acre pond well-suited to brook trout, was threatened when the surrounding private land was listed for sale. By acquiring 9.5 acres with all the Pond’s shore frontage, the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife guaranteed access for bank fishing and canoeing on this small, readily accessible water body. The site is well-suited for family outings, particularly with young anglers learning to fish. The purchase was funded with support from the Land for Maine’s Future Program and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Sport Fish Restoration Program.
