Location: New England Freshwater
 The 2018 fishing season at Wachusett Reservoir, a walk-in, shore-fishing-only venue in west central Massachusetts, commenced April 7.

 In the autumn many species of freshwater game fish and panfish including largemouths, smallmouths, pickerel, pike, crappies, perch, broodstock salmon, and trout can be found well within casting distance of shore-bound fishermen.
