Little Herring Pond

Little Herring Pond is 90 acre, shallow natural pond with an average depth of three feet and a maximum depth of only four feet. The bottom is composed of gravel and muck. The pond is fed by groundwater (including springs at the northern end) and runoff and feeds into Great Herring Pond. The pond is heavily vegetated during the summer months. The ponds 2.3 miles of shoreline are only lightly developed with houses and cranberry bogs. 

Little Herring Pond is located in South Plymouth, north of Great Herring Pond and just west of Long Pond Road. Little Herring Pond is an enlarged great pond and public access is a Plymouth county right-of-way located off Little Herring Pond Road, which is off of Carters Bridge Road. 

The pond was last surveyed on August 1, 1994 and contained yellow perch, largemouth bass, pumpkinseed sunfish, golden shiner, bluegill, chain pickerel, alewife, blueback herring, white sucker, brown bullhead, smallmouth bass and American eel.

Anglers can expect some good chain pickerel and largemouth bass fishing in this pond although weedless lures are in order during the summer months. Anglers pursuing yellow perch, brown bullhead or pumpkinseed will also find good action here.
