Amherst Millpond

Amherst Millpond is a 48 acre, hard water impoundment located in the Village of Amherst. Created by a dam on the Tomorrow River for power to the local feed mill, the pond has a maximum depth of five feet and a bottom consisting of sand covered with silt. The estimated volume of the pond in 116 acre feet, the shoreline length is 2.8 miles. The Tomorrow River is navigable above and below the dam, and there are two public access points on the east side of the pond; the boat landing and Cate Park. The pond was chemically treated with fish toxicants in 1971 and restocked with preferred species. Currently northern pike and panfish are present. The shoreline is heavily developed.
