Lakes in Rhode Island


Although it's nicknamed the Ocean State, Rhode Island isn't only notable for its Atlantic beaches. And although the salty, sparkling waters of Narragansett Bay lie at the heart of the state economically and culturally, Little Rhody also contains numerous scenic rivers acclaimed for their preponderance of trout and salmon.

Rhode Island also contains freshwater ponds and lakes of interest to anglers and other lake enthusiasts. For instance, Slacks Reservoir is popular, well-developed lake in Providence County. Slacks offers fishing, swimming and picnicking, but boating is prohibited. Kent County's Flat River Reservoir, a.k.a. Johnson's Pond, is the state's best location for water sports, especially wakeboarding. Fishing, skiing, tubing, sailing and power boating are also popular there. For anglers, Beach Pond in Washington County is worth a visit. It contains fine populations of both warm water fish (calico and largemouth bass) and coldwater fish (rainbow trout and walleye).
