This is a site for launching boats from trailers. Boat ramps can normally be used to launch canoes and kayaks but please do your best to keep the boat ramp clear for boat trailers.

Description & Overview:

Tucker Pond is an 86 acre lake with a RI DEM fishing access site at the north end. There is a cement plank boat ramp here and a small parking lot. There is a 10hp limit on all boats on the pond. Most of the shoreline of the pond is wooded and natural, but privately owned except for this RI DEM site at the northwest corner and a town park (Tuckertown Park) at the northeast corner of the pond. Tucker Pond has various coves and islands to paddle around. It is stocked with trout in the early spring.

This site provides access to the following water bodies in the Pawcatuck River watershed: Tucker Pond.

The fishing can be tough here. I have caught more smaller bass than larger ones. I did catch a nice sized trout in deep waters on a hot day...wacky rig. If I'm not catching then I'm taking in the scenery and enjoying the solitude.

Tough pond to fish, but they are in there. I recently saw a fisherman with an 8lb 11oz bass. I caught a nice rainbow trout in a deep area on a wacky rig. Beautiful pond to explore.
