Rogers Pond is located in the towns of Lyme and Old Lyme and is a natural lake within the Connecticut River Drainage Basin. The water level was raised 4 feet by a concrete and masonry dam across the outlet. The lake has two deep basins connected by a shallow area of less than 6 ft. The watershed is 4,819 acres of mostly woods and wetland with some residential development. Rogers is fed by Grassy Hill Brook from the north and by several other small streams. The outlet is through the dam at the southern end of the lake. It flows into Mill Brook, a tributary of the Lieutenant River. The shoreline is lined almost entirely by residences. There is a town park located on the southern shore. The shore is lined almost entirely by residences.

The transparency of the lake is clear with visibility of 11 feet in late summer. The bottom of the lake consists of mud, sand, gravel and rubble. The fishing in the lake should be excellent for largemouth bass, good to excellent for trout with a chance for a holdover; good for bullheads, and fair for other species. Expect walleye fishing to be slow, but fish caught will be large (to 8 pounds).
