Fisheries has stocked eight lakes (Crystal Lake, Highland Lake, Squantz Pond, West Hill Pond, East Twin Lake, Amos Lake, Quonnipaug Lake, and Rogers Lake) with a total of 4,000 trout (2,000 Rainbows and 2,000 Brook Trout). These fish average 16 inches in length and are being produced specifically for these “March Season” lakes that have a daily creel limit of one trout with a 16 inch minimum length during the month of March. Fishing closes at these lakes on March 31, 2019.
Candlewood Lake will be the only March season trout lake not getting stocked with some of these fish. It will be stocked with the normal number of trout prior to opening day (too large for the number of fish we have available).
