Northwoods Outfitters, where we rented kayaks, mentioned this as a great place to kayak and fish, and they were right. Prong Pond is much quieter than Moosehead Lake, with no big boats or jet skis to disturb the tranquility. We spent four hours paddling around and fishing, catching some nice bass and some sunfish. Don't let the term "pond" confuse... More

Love to go kayaking and fishing here.....ask a local or use your Delorme to find this great spot. Even when I do not catch many fish, I love to come here to paddle around. It is an easy in/out for your kayak or boat and it is safe to leave your vehicle in the parking area.

We rented a canoe to go fishing on Prong pond while visiting Greenville. We had a blast!! We caught over 30 Brooke trout and really enjoyed ourselves. The water is pretty calm and there are very few people on the pond. It's a quiet area.

Prong Pond is one of the best kept "secrets" of the Moosehead region. It is a smaller, semi-isolated pond that lends itself to a relaxing day (well, half-day) of paddling and wildlife watching. If you show up early enough, there is a very good chance you will see moose in the marshes of its various inlets and if you arrive... More

We rented canoes for the afternoon on Prong Pond and it was utterly beautiful! It was so peaceful and unspoilt, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and loved seeing the Loons, Osprey and Bald Eagles.

We fished Prong Pond from our tandem kayak. Putting the boat in and taking it out was very easy. The fishing was slow but we did haul in a 5 pound smallmouth bass. The pond is hard to paddle on windy days.

Nice place to go for a paddle. Place for parking and easy unloading with small ramp of put in. Quiet place, not much traffic. Warm water fishing pond, but was not there for fishing. Paddled around the shoreline and explored few islands. Nice to place to paddle if it is windy in a nice setting. Actual visit was prior to... More

Great small pond surrounded with beauty. Nice place for a quiet canoe paddle and picnic lunch. We played "tag" with two loons with our canoe, enjoyed by us and the loons!

What a great little pond to launch a kayak or a canoe. Very secluded and quiet. We got to see several Loons..just beautiful. Lovely to listen to also.

I tried fishing from my kayak with no success. The kayaking was easy and the surroundings are so beautiful. It is another wonderful Maine pond with no entry cost and easy access.
