Maine NFC Opposes Removal of Coldwater Pond from State Heritage Fish List

Clearwater Pond has a 4-digit WATCODE, or MIDAS number, a state government designation only given to lakes and ponds. Its formal name has the word “Pond” in it. The position of IFW is that it is no longer a lake or pond and therefore State Heritage Fish designation is no longer warranted. While there have been some changes in the water over the last eight or so years, both bad and good, it was a pond when it was named and designated as such, and it is a pond today.
