Sabattus Pond is a large, shallow body of water located near the cities of Lewiston and Auburn. Much of this pond's shoreline is developed with permanent and seasonal homes. Because of its proximity to two of Maine's most populous cities, Sabattus is heavily used for a variety of recreational activities. The town of Sabattus maintains a public boat launch near Martin's Point from which anglers can access the pond. Sabattus Pond has been plagued with poor water quality for many years. Excessive amounts of nutrient and sediments reaching the pond from agricultural and residential developments have significantly altered the pond's fisheries. For example, smallmouth bass were once abundant, but the proliferation of rooted aquatic plants and algae has reduced the amount and quality of habitat required by this species. Habitat conditions now are more favorable for largemouth bass. Recognizing this, Department biologists introduced largemouth bass to the pond in 1964. Presently, largemouths appear to be abundant and are providing a popular fishery, particularly during the summer months. Only a small fishery for smallmouths remains.
