Cold Stream Pond is one of the finest lakes in central Maine. It is very scenic with views of Mount Katahdin to the north and the "Bluff", a large elevated peninsula that separates the southern and northern basins of the lake. This large lake which is partly located in the towns of Enfield, Lincoln and Lowell, is probably best known for its incredible water quality and clarity. The water quality is so good that the state of Maine established a fish hatchery in Enfield using the lakes water via a pipeline. The lake is supplied water by springs and also fed by the outlet of the two Upper Cold Stream Ponds located in Lincoln. This outlet is Smelt Brook and enters Cold Stream Pond in the northern basin. A few other cold brooks enter the lake including Miles Brook and the outlet of nearby Trout Pond in Lowell.
The surface area of the lake is more than 3,600 acres. The upper basin is approximately 704 acres and has a maximum depth of 56 feet. This part of the lake is a quiet place to explore large rocky coves with a kayak and is usually the first area of the lake that is safe for ice fishing in the winter. The lower basin contains about 2,924 acres with water depths up to 104 feet. This is a deep round basin perfect for boating, water skiing and sailing. If fishing is your thing, then the fact that Lake Trout are native to Cold Stream Pond and naturally reproduce in the spawning beds within Webb Cove and other locations should make this an exciting location. No stocking is necessary to maintain this fishery. The lake is known to occasionally produce a trophy lake trout in excess of 20 pounds. Landlocked salmon and brook trout are maintained by a State of Maine stocking program making this a great place to fish by boat, from your dock or through the ice in winter.
For the outdoorsmen and women there are miles of trails for cross country skiing or you can ride snowmobiles and ATVs from your doorstep to nearby trails. Down hill skiing is just 15 minutes away in the town of Lee. Any way you look at it, this is a great recreational location no matter what your interests!
