Not what most think

I've caught lots of trout there, rainbows and browns for the most part. I've seen brook trout in there as well. People seem to get the idea that it's very polluted but CT has cleaned it up a lot obviously still kinda polluted but not bad at all definitely has come a long way.

Amazing lake
Avatar of jgustavson5681

I’ve lived on candlewood for the summer every year of my life and have gotten very passionate about my fishing because of this. There are a bunch of big smallies and I’ve caught most on a 1/8 oz shaker head and yum finesse worm. Drop shot works well too with the deep waters. Big largemouth will hit a big worm too. Overall a great lake👍👍
