The last major survey of this pond was conducted in 1982, at which time seven species were recorded present: largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, chain pickerel, yellow perch, brown bullhead, pumpkinseed and killifish. Small yellow perch (4 to 5 inches) were the most abundant fish in the pond at that time. Lawrence Pond is known to contain healthy populations of both largemouth and smallmouth bass. For bass, try casting small jigs, sinking crankbaits and spinnerbaits in light colors to any visible structure, and also along the channel between the southern points. Except at sunrise, sunset or during the hours of darkness, most legal bass will be at depths of 10 to 25 feet. The eastern points often hold pickerel, particularly around the limited patches of aquatic vegetation. Other nearby ponds in Sandwich include Spectacle Pond, Triangle Pond and Peters Pond.
