Free Vermont lakes and ponds depth maps

Vermont has over 800 lakes and ponds throughout the state.  Some have been mapped and are posted on the Watershed Management Web page.

Thus far, 155 depth maps are available, with 149 of those available in pdf format.

Map quality varies from hand drawn maps with a single deep hole to GIS created maps with depth lines denoting every meter of change.  Some are from the mid 20th century and some were created recently.  As a result, they are not to be used for navigation, but are excellent to explore the lake and find fishing holes.
