All About Cochnewagon Pond

Cozy Cochnewagon Lake is tucked within Kennebec County, about 16 miles southwest of Augusta, Maine’s capital city. Also known as Cochnewagon Pond, this stellar body of water spans 394 acres with a four-mile shoreline peppered with cabins. Fishing, boating, and water sports take center stage on this lake with an average depth of 22 feet and a maximum depth of 28 feet.

Fishing is popular at Cochnewagon Pond, particularly for warm water species such as brown trout, smallmouth and largemouth bass, white perch, and chain pickerel. Brown trout has been stocked here since 1966. Bullhead, American eel, and redbreast sunfish are also present. Families from far and wide look forward to the annual children’s ice fishing derbies that are held here during the wintertime. Other family-oriented winter sports located near Cochnewagon Lake include downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling.

Facilities at Cochnewagon Lake include picnic tables, a boat ramp, and a welcome area called the Monmouth Center. Camping, water skiing, and swimming are the most popular outdoor activities. Real estate properties are readily available nearby, with many cabins featuring stunning lakeside vistas.

The area around the Kennebec River was originally colonized by the Popham colony, one of the first English settlements in the New World. Although it was abandoned after only one year, this community was one of the most influential in New England. Modern day Kennebec County thrived as a trading hub as early as 1629, at which time it was referred to as “Koussinoc,” meaning “head of tide” by Native Americans.

Beach lovers delight in relaxing day trips to Popham Beach State Park, just a short drive from Cochnewagon Lake. Surfing here is top notch, as is sea kayaking out to Woods Island. At low tide it is possible to stroll along the sandbar to its neighbor, Fox Island. Wildlife watching is ideal from any of the shore’s numerous picnic areas. Beachcombing, swimming and fishing are just a few of the other entertaining things to do here.

Also close to Cochnewagon Pond is Woodbury Pond Park, a public area run by the City of Litchfield. Facilities include picnic tables, playgrounds, grills, public phones, and restrooms. Horseshoes, swimming, and volleyball are some of the park’s most notable sports. Anglers love trawling Woodbury Pond’s fertile waters, open weekends Memorial Day through mid-June, and daily from mid-June through Labor Day. The Park charges a small entrance fee.

Adrenaline seekers simply cannot miss out on whitewater rafting down the Cobbosseecontee Stream. Here you can tackle class III and IV whitewater rapids along a 1.5-mile stretch of refreshing, swift water. November is the wettest month of the year, and heavy rains create extra tough conditions. February sees the least amount of rain, at which time the river is at its least intense.

Cochnewagon Lake is less than a mile away from the town of Monmouth. Here you will find two interesting examples of New England culture: the Monmouth Museum and Shakespearian Theater. The museum is filled with 19th century exhibits and features eight historic buildings to tour. Various shopping centers, bowling alleys and golf courses can be explored nearby.

There are several other lakes around Cochnewagon Pond, the largest being Androscoggin, a 4,000-acre habitat for loons and eagles. Cobbosseecontee Lake is made up of 5,543 acres and known for its amazing fishing and convenient proximity to Maine’s state capital, Augusta. The Wilson Stream Reservoir is another picturesque locale perfect for recreational water activities.

If you are looking for a peaceful lakeside getaway, Cochnewagon Lake is the perfect place to relocate or retire. Imagine yourself listening to the waves as they gently lap against its sandy shores, letting your mind wander as the sun sets over this sparkling body of water.
