They Call It "Home"

Trout in Malden Angler's pond enjoy a clear, clean, balanced ecosystem. A variety of mayfly, caddis and midge help maintain a healthy trout population throughout the season. Osprey, hawk, geese, king fishers, muskrat, turtles and fox are regular visitors to the grounds.

The pond is stocked twice each year, in March/April and again in September.

Patkin Pond

Named after north shore citizen photographer Jordan Patkin (1924-2011), Patkin Pond is located in Saugus, Massachusetts just minutes from Boston and Route 128/I-95, making it convenient to anglers who live north, south, and west of the city.  Club members enjoy dawn-to-dusk, catch-and-release fly fishing  for trout on the three-acre pond from ice-out in the spring to ice-up in late autumn; usually seven to eight months a year. Largemouth bass, some exceeding four pounds, can be taken during the late spring and summer with fly tackle or spinning gear and lures. The club encourages the practice of catch-and-release.

Fish Where The Fish Are

While wading is not permitted, there are six casting platforms that allow coverage of much of the pond as well as numerous spots for casting from shore. There is also a boat launch to launch a canoe, kayak or float tube if you wish to try fishing the deeper water toward the middle of the pond.
