Fishing for largemouth bass, black crappie, white crappie, bluegill, pumpkinseed sunfish, white perch and yellow perch at Lums Pond in Delaware.

The most popular fishing lake in Delaware is Lums Pond, a 200-acre impoundment located in the northern section of the state, at Kirkwood. The lake has about 6 miles of shoreline, with numerous locations accessible for fishing from the bank. A boat launch ramp is located on the far-south side of the lake. The ramp descends at a very shallow taper which can make launching larger boats difficult. Otherwise it is fine for small to medium-size boats, kayaks and canoes. The fish species swimming in this pond include bass, crappie, sunfish and perch. This lake receives fairly heavy fishing pressure from locals, so you may wish to try out-of-the-box techniques, be patient, and work presentations slower than usual.
