Lakes in Connecticut


According to Connecticut's Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, the state contains more than 120 lakes and ponds of interest to those who like to fish.

Some are relatively big lakes; others are very small. The largest is Bantam Lake, a 947-acre northern pike lake located in the Morris-Litchfield area. Although its pike fishing is seasonal, Bantam Lake also offers year-round fishing for other species. At 372 acres, Beach Pond in Voluntown is another good-sized fishing hole in Connecticut (and Rhode Island) that provides year-round fishing opportunities, including ice fishing. Although it's known for its walleye, Beach Pond also contains pickerel, bass and salmon.

The smallest fishing pond in the state is 1.1-acre Beachland Pond in West Hartford. Beachland, a children’s fishing lake, is open only to those under 16 years of age.
