Worden Pond, located in the southern part of Rhode Island near the town of South Kingstown, is the largest freshwater body in the state. Spanning over 1,040 acres, it offers a wide range of fishing opportunities for anglers of all skill levels.

Largemouth bass is undoubtedly one of the most sought-after species in Worden Pond. The lake's abundance of submerged structures, vegetation, and fallen trees provides an ideal habitat for these prized game fish. Early mornings and evenings are prime times for bass fishing, especially during the warmer months. Anglers often use a variety of techniques, including topwater lures, jigs, and plastic worms, to entice these powerful predators.

Another popular fish species in Worden Pond is the black crappie. These panfish can be found near submerged structures and around docks. Anglers can use small jigs, live bait, or soft plastics to catch these tasty fish, particularly during the spring and fall months.

Chain pickerel are also abundant in Worden Pond and offer thrilling action for anglers. Known for their aggressive strikes, pickerel can be caught using spinners, spoons, or flashy lures, especially in the shallower areas of the lake.

Northern pike, the top predator in the pond, provides an exciting challenge for anglers seeking big-game fish. Catching northern pike requires sturdy tackle and large lures like swimbaits or spinnerbaits. They are most active during the cooler months and can often be found near weedy areas.
