Fall Reflection on Togus Pond in the Belgrade Lakes Region of Maine

Lakefront Properties For Sale on Togus Pond


At 643 acres, Togus Pond has a maximum depth of 49 feet, with a mean depth of 18 feet. It’s three miles long and about a mile wide. The water quality is below average, but the Worromontogus Lake Association, led by Greg Jolda, president, is working with the Maine DEP/EPA on a Phosphorus Control Action Plan.

Little Togus Pond, located across Route 105 at the southern end of Togus Pond, encompasses 69 acres and has a maximum depth of 22 feet, with a mean depth of 9 feet.

Though Worromontogus is derived from an Abenaki word, its meaning isn’t clear. Suggestions include “Spring Under Mountain,” “Brook Cove” and “Small Vermillion Outlet.”

Anglers will enjoy excellent bass fishing on Togus Pond. Largemouth and smallmouth bass, plus brown trout and white perch are the principal fisheries. The state has also stocked the pond with alewife, which had been absent from Worromontogus Stream and Togus Pond since the mid-19th century.

There is no public boat launch, but residents do use the Route 105 culvert crossing as an informal public access point.

Togus Pond is part of the China Lakes area in the Belgrade Lakes Region. The three other lakes in the chain are China Lake, Webber Pond and Threemile Pond.

There’s a long history of summer cottages and camps on Togus Pond. Fisherman and visitors alike come to make memories and carry on traditions that last for generations. Swim. Read. Ponder. RELAX. Imagine watching awe-inspiring sunsets from your screened waterfront porch while listening to the haunting call of the loons. Or roasting marshmallows over the crackling fire in your lakefront firepit. Imagine owning a waterfront property on Togus Pond for your vacation getaway.

Togus Pond is located only ten minutes from the state capitol, twenty minutes from golf courses, thirty minutes from the Maine coast, and within easy driving distance to Colby, Thomas and Unity Colleges.
