White Oak Pond

Located in Wayne County, White Oak Pond is a 225-acre impoundment owned by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and managed by the Fish and Boat Commission for public fishing and boating.


White Oak Pond is an infertile water and home to largemouth bass, chain pickerel, bluegill, pumpkinseed, black crappie, brown and yellow bullhead, and yellow perch. The mainstay of the fishery is comprised of bluegill, pumpkinseed, and brown and yellow bullhead. Golden shiner are the only forage species. The average and maximum depths of the pond are 6.7 and 11.5 feet, respectively.

All species of fish are managed under statewide regulations for Commonwealth Inland Waters regulations.

The Commission historically has stocked the lake with Walleye fingerling.


Boating is limited to boats powered by electric motors and un-powered boats. One launch ramp is available along with associated parking facilities.

Un-powered boats may be moored at the lake in accordance with Commission property regulations. To be used at the lake, boats must be registered or have a valid launch permit (permits are issued by the Commission or PA Dept. of Conservation and Natural Resources).
