Fletcher Pond

Fletcher Pond(Fletcher Floodwater) is a man-made body of water located in Northeast lower Michigan. The pond covers over 9,000 acres (36 km²) of land that was previously cedar forest. A dam was built in the 1930's which blocked the flow of the Thunder Bay River and provided hydroelectric power.

Fletcher Pond has over 13 islands which provide excellent habitat for the various species of marine birds which use the seclusion as a safe place to make nests and rear young. In addition, several stands have been erected in order to provide an acceptable nesting area for Osprey. This has been very conducive to Osprey frequenting the area as the pond has been said to sustain a very large Osprey population.

Fletcher pond is a popular destination for fishermen, bird watchers, nature lovers and hunters.
