Beautiful lake with many coves to explore. Several sand beaches on crown land with great camping and swimming. Averaging under 20' deep with 40' in places. A rocky lake with large shallow areas, points/shoals that extend far into the main lake. Lots of experience needed before getting too courageous with the throttle. 2 public boat landings with tricky entrances into the main lake. SW cove landing has a very good road, enters the lake in a cove with several islands. Staying close to the south end of Birch island is one safe way to enter the main lake. Pass between it and the small Pine Island on your right. Continue a few hundred yards past Birch Is. before turning up lake as there is a rocky shoal running parallel on the east side.
The other landing is on the east side in the "Basin" not far from the beginning of the Oromocto River. The road in is rough but passable. The entrance to the main lake is thru "the Jaws" it's narrow and shallow, raise your motor and go slow picking your way on the right (north) side of the Jaws when you exit the Basin. The locals are very friendly and willing to help with directions or simply "follow me".
A relaxed pace is evident on Oromocto Lake with pontoon boats and various pleasure craft, few "watercraft/jetskis". Take a look at the Oromocto Lake Association (OLA)Facebook page for pictures and a pretty good map of the lake with depths.
Fishing is decent with Smallmouth Bass, Pickerel, and Landlocked Salmon.
