Looking for a place to take a kid fishing?  The Rising Sun pond is a great spot – easy access to the banks, no obstacles that could create problems as long as you properly supervise the activity.  The pond is small enough to fishing the entire circumference.

Depending on when you arrive during the Spring season, Rising Sun Pond may have a unique green/blue sheen to it. Each year, the DNR treats the pond to reduce the growth of elodea that would clog the entire pond if not controlled. The chemical used is not harmful and is biodegradable.

If you wanted, you could put a boat on this small pond as long as you do not use a gas motor. However, that is overkill given the small size and the universal accessibility provided by the manicured bank. The pond is only 11 feet deep, so the fish have nowhere to hide. In addition to trout, you can also catch large and smallmouth bass.

Getting There:From I-95, take exit 93 toward MD 222/Perryville. Turn right onto MD 275N/Perrylawn Drive. Turn right onto MD 276. At the traffic circle, turn right onto MD 273E/Rising Sun Road. The pond is on the left.

To avoid the toll over the Susquehanna, take US 1 east from Belair and stay on MD 273 when it splits to the west of Rising Sun. Follow MD 273 to the pond.

There is limited parking at the entrance to the pond that fits three or four vehicles.

Access Point: Parking lot next to the pond 39.697212,-76.071547

Secrets Revealed? No. This is a very public location that is documented in the Maryland DNR stocking plan.
