Fishing - April in Connecticut

Killingworth, Connecticut USA

Chatfield Hollow State Park is a public recreation area lying adjacent to Cockaponset State Forest in the town of Killingworth, Connecticut. The state park offers hiking trails, a swimming beach, trout fishing, mountain biking, rock climbing, and picnicking areas. Park attractions include Indian caves, historic sites, a restored water wheel, and a reproduction covered bridge.

The park was developed in the 1930s as a Civilian Conservation Corps recreation area within Cockaponset State Forest.[4] The CCC created seven-acre Schreeder Pond in 1934 by building a horseshoe-shaped earth and stone dam across Chatfield Hollow Brook. In 1937, Oak Lodge was raised on the west side of Schreeder Pond; the lodge was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986. Wikipedia

Nice outdoor activity scene, Frank. Judging by the number of people fishing they must stock the pond. Beautiful lighting and the highlights are really nice. Vote.
