For the past three weeks or so Eddie, our news source in West Boylston, Massachusetts, has been telling us that anglers at Wachusett Reservoir, a shore-fishing-only impoundment situated just north of Worcester, have been catching lots of lake trout in the 3- and 4-pound classes.

Posted By Rod Teehan
Location: New England Freshwater
My fishing partner, John Chrisant, and I made the right decision September 8, a cool, cloudy, 5- to 10-mph north wind day. Rather than fish the main body of Quabbin Reservoir we elected to try our luck at O’Loughlin Pond, a small warmwater site located at Gate 31. Part of ...

On September 4 my fishing partner, John Chrisant, and I returned to Quabbin Reservoir’s Gate 31 hoping for a repeat of the largemouth bass fishing we enjoyed August 31 (see last week’s Inland Report). After launching at 6:00 a.m. we motored directly to the same spot where we ‘d hooked ...
