Allen Pond is located in a small highland area a few miles from the cities of Lewiston and Auburn. The water quality is considered excellent for most salmonids; however, competition from warmwater species results in slow growth and survival of stocked fish.
Brown trout and brook trout are stocked annually due to the scarcity of suitable spawning tributaries. Stocking results have been best with large fall yearling brown trout. Stocked fish of this size are better able to survive and compete with the other fish species present. Brook trout are stocked to provide a popular short term fishery. This specie usually prefers to forage upon insects and does not do well when there are many other warmwater fish present competing for the same food source.
Presently, public access is via a commercial campground located on the eastern shore. Times of operation, fees, and future availability issues create the need for a more suitable public boat access.
