McDill Pond is a 261 acre hard water impoundment, located in the Village of Whiting, near Stevens Point. McDill Pond has a maximum depth of 14 feet and a bottom consisting of primarily sand, with some gravel, silt, and muck. McDill Pond has a long history, dating back to 1853 when the original dam was first constructed for logging purposes. There is a small park below the dam that serves an abundance of waterfowl and an osprey nest near the northern tip of this urban pond. Panfish and largemouth bass are the common fish species in McDill, with smallmouth bass and northern pike also present. A public boat launch is present on the east shore of the pond. Exotic aquatic plant species including Eurasian water-milfoil and curlyleaf pondweed have altered the pond’s ecosystem, and harvesting throughout the summer is part of the aquatic plant management activities in McDill Pond. The last large-scale operation on the pond occurred in 2003 when extensive dredging took place.
