Lake Lillinonah

LakeLillinonah…………..click here to view photo tour

Connecticut’s second largestLakeLillinonahis located between the boundaries of Bridgewater, Brookfield, New Milford, Newtown, and Southbury. Its headwaters being the Housatonic River in New Milford. The lake was formed in 1955 by Connecticut Light and Power for hydroelectricity and flood control for the Housatonic Valley. The land that was flooded to form Lake Lillinonah was virtually a canyon with rather steep hills on all sides. These steep hillsides still exist about the water and rise some 200 ft or more along the lake. From New Milford the lake extends about 12 miles south to the Shepaug Dam, in Newtown. The lake covers 1900 acres, has 45 miles of shoreline; and has a maximum water depth of 110 feet.

The shoreline of LakeLillinonahis beautifully lined with primarily deciduous forests. Of the 45 miles of shoreline 43 are wooded. Lake Lillinonah is the winter home to as many as 40 Bald Eagles. The eagles have discovered that the tail race below the Shepaug Dan is a good source for fish and feed there from November to March. The eagles roost along the steep shores of the lake. One of the major roosting areas is the west shore line of the Shepaug River branch on the lake 3 ½ miles from the dam.  For more information about the Eagles on LakeLillinonah click here

The lake ranks as one of Connecticut’s premier fishing lakes with excellent Bass fishing. The Connecticutstate record for Northern Pike was caught in LakeLillinonah.  Lake Lillinonah ranks first in the state for bass growth rates and among the highest in the state for bass population densities. LakeLillinonahis a hidden treasure that has become a true asset for the towns adjoining the lake, regional residents, and visitors to the area. The lake also ranks very high on family fun voting, by everybody we have talked to.

With only about 100 waterfront homes, Lake Lillinonah is mostly undeveloped scenic woodlands, quiet coves and hidden rivers like the Shepaug River and beautiful parks like Lovers Leap . The only marina on the lake is West Cove Marina which is of special interest for antique boat fans, they almost always have two or three boats from the 60’s or earlier and are able to repair older outboard motors.
