Chandler Mill Pond in New Gloucester is one of the Royal River’s few headwater ponds. This 47 acre pond sits on a 117 acre forested parcel and has a hand-carry boat launch for water access. The pond is within walking distance of New Gloucester’s growing Upper Village, and just miles from the Auburn city limits. Chandler Mill Pond lacks residential development along its shoreline and immediate watershed, and supports a high quality trout fishery with free public access. The pond is very productive and has produced exceptional fishing for brook trout, including trout of noteworthy size. Since 2007 the pond has been exclusively managed for rainbow trout.
