Fly fishing only and only 10 acres in size, Moose Pond is one of the best places in the Connecticut Lakes Region to fish when the pond fishing season opens. Spring fed, this pond is home to brook trout, moose (as the name implies) and numerous bait fish.
This pond fishes well from the opening of the season to early July. Then it fishes well from the time the weather cools in September to the season’s end, October 15. In the spring, the pond is one of the first ‘hot spots’ to fish.
The pond is fed by springs. Find the springs bubbling up and you will find the trout on the warmer days. The best way to fish the pond is by kick boat, float tubes, canoe, kayak or small boat.
Fishing Season: 4th Saturday in April to October 15th
Brook Trout – 5 fish or 5 lbs whichever is reached first
