Upper Hadlock Pond is located on the east side of Route 3 just north of Asticou Azalea Garden in Northeast Harbor on Mount Desert Island, Maine. This lovely 35 acre pond has a nice hiking trail along the southern and western shoreline that eventually intersects one of the carriage roads before moving onto 974 foot (297 m) Bald Peak. (see panoramic)
Shoreline depths can range from 5 - 17 feet. The deepest part, at 37 feet, is just south of the approximate center of the pond. It is closed to pets in water, swimming, windsurfing, and SCUBA diving. Canoes or kayaks may be used. Motors over 10 horsepower are prohibited.
Upper Hadlock Pond is known for brook trout and is stocked on a fairly regular basis. An occasional brown trout is possible. There is a daily bag limit of 2 trout with a minimum length of 12 inches. Only one may exceed 14 inches.
An extended season exists from October 1 - 31 but all fish caught must be released alive at once. Only artificial lures are allowed.
