Private homes and the Berlin Turnpike border the eastern side. A railroad track runs through woods on the west side of the lake. The lake has a state boat ramp but no public swimming access. Mercury contamination has led the Connecticut Department of Public Health to issue a fish-consumption warning for the lake. The lake was dredged several years ago to harvest peat and to reduce the growth of aquatic plants.

User Discussion:
Fish here very often and catch a lot of LMB in the back half of the pond. rubber worms seem to work the best here. To many weeds for any other type of bait. Best Fishing is when there is no wind and around sunset. To avoid the Pickerel try no to reel to fast or they will ruin your day. Unless your have a steel leader.

April 7, 2008 Went fishing here this morning around 7 a.m. Using various rubber worms. Didn't even get a bite. But watched 2 older gentlemen using live minnows on bobbers reel in 2 descent size LMB within 10 min of setting their poles. (Lucky Them). Water Is Clear and weeds at a min. Water temp was cold as expected.
