 Fishing
      Little Chauncy Pond is an excellent spot for catching panfish, bass, or pickerel. You should be able to catch a lot of fish, but don't expect too many large “keepers”. This is a nice place to introduce children to the sport of fishing. Little Chauncy has produced trophy-sized fish through the Division’s Freshwater Sportfishing Award Program, including Bullhead, Chain Pickerel, and Sunfish. It is a fairly good pond for Yellow Perch during the ice fishing season.

Description
       Little Chauncy Pond, a Great Pond, offers anglers an opportunity to fish in a relatively unspoiled, tranquil environment. With no cottages or houses along its shoreline, Little Chauncy can provide hours of enjoyable fishing in a natural setting, either from shore or in a small boat.
      In late summer weed can dominate the first 20 feet around the pond.  Keep  this in mind when planing.
