2 6TH PELLETIER BROOK LAKE T15 R9, Aroostook Co. U.S.G.S. Gardner Pond, Maine (7 1/2 ) Fishes Brook trout Minnows Blacknose dace Pearl dace Physical Characteristics Area - 27 acres Average depth - 2 feet Maximum depth - 5 feet Temperature: Surface F Principal fishery: Brook trout Fifth Pelletier Brook Lake is shallow with about equal water temperatures at all depths. When water temperatures warm during hot summer months, spring inflow is crucial to providing sufficient cold water to sustain the trout population. The lake water level is dependent upon the condition of the beaver dam at the outlet. A higher lake level would be advantageous to the trout population and fishery. The trout fishery in the pond is maintained entirely by natural reproduction from spring inlets. Conservative fishing regulations have been implemented to maintain and enhance the sport fishery. Two-wheel drive access near the pond is via improved private gravel roads maintained by industrial landowners for forest management purposes. An unmarked foot trail leads to the lake from the gravel road.

6 BLACK LAKE (BLACK POND) T15 R9, Aroostook Co. U.S.G.S. Deboullie Pond, Maine (7 1/2 ) Fishes Brook trout Blueback charr Yellow perch Minnows Lake chub Common shiner Blacknose dace Physical Characteristics Area acres Average depth - 35 feet Maximum depth - 90 feet Temperatures: Surface F 85 feet F Principal fisheries: Brook trout, blueback charr Black Lake maintains ideal water quality for coldwater sportfish. The deep waters are cool with ample amounts of dissolved oxygen throughout the warm summer months. Brook trout are the primary sport fish in Black Lake. Spawning occurs along the shoreline and, to a lesser extent, within the outlet stream. Yellow perch compete with the brook trout for the available food supply. Black Lake supports a self-sustaining population of the rare bleuback charr typically found in deep coldwater lakes. Spawning takes place over shoals within the lake. Conservative fishing regulations have been implemented to maintain and enhance the sport fishery. Black Lake is one of many ponds situated in close proximity in T15 R9, a township owned by the State of Maine. Access to the lake is via a one mile hike over an unimproved road from Deboullie Lake. Twowheel drive access to Deboullie Lake is available over improved gravel roads, however, it is necessary to ford the Red River.

24 MOCCASIN POND T14R8, Aroostook County U.S.G.S. Carr Pond, Me (7 1/2 ) Fishes Brook trout Minnows Redbelly dace Creek chub Pearl dace Physical Characteristics Area - 32 acres Average depth - 6 feet Maximum depth - 16 feet Temperatures: Surface F 16 feet F Principal fishery: Brook trout Moccasin Pond provides suitable habitat for brook trout and has been noted for excellent trout fishing. The pond consists of two basins: the lower that is shallow and the upper basin that has the deep cold water utilized by trout during warm summer months. Moccasin Pond has no sizable tributaries. The outlet is normally dammed by beaver activity that significantly raises the water level in the pond. The dam should not be removed. Few wild brook trout have been taken at Moccasin Pond as the fishery is currently supported entirely by annual stocking of hatchery fish. Poor quality spawning habitat probably precludes existence of a wild population of trout. Conservative regulations have been implemented to maintain and enhance sport-fishing opportunities and provide a high quality trout fishery. Special regulations include terminal tackle restrictions. The trout fishery at this small pond can be characterized as high quality with good catch rates for trout 10 to 16 inches in length. Access to Moccasin Pond is via gravel roads maintained by industrial landowners for forest management purposes. Watercraft must be carried over a narrow trail leading to the west side of the pond.
