I love catching walleye, but don't know any places to catch them, other than the Saugatuck, any body hook them up any where else in CT

Gardner lake, Squantz Pond, Coventry Lake, and I'm sure I'm forgetting a couple.

Ryan, Squantz pond is great for walleye, I stuck a 7 lber in Candlewood lake during a tourny on a 4 inch worm. My buddy goes at night and gets them on topwater.

You need the Moulby (sp?) lakes permitt for there right?

Good to fear about big walleye there, when people talk about 13-14 inch wallies as being keepers I kind of shake my head. The fish I am targeting are in the 24+ inch group. Pulled a few close to that out of the Saugatuck but will have to give these other lakes a try.

Thanks for the posts, will have to get my slip riggs ready.

Coventry Lake and Mashapaug in Bigelow State Park in Union are good for walleye. However coventry has a lot of speed boats.

Yo Ryan,

You should def try lake saltonstall in branford,ct. There walleye fishing is awesome. You can only rent boats there or fish from the trails, but you do need a permit there. Actually this weekend on sunday they have a walleye tournament, and I 'm pretty sure anyone can go it may be $35 for boat and trolling motor and $25 to enter, if you are interested just show up early like 5:30 or 6:00 am you should def be able to get a boat. By the way I'm living in trumbull now with my girlfriend, if you ever want to go to saltonstall let me know im a permit holder.

Batterson I wouldn't waste my time. Yes there are walleyes in there but nothing big because nothing has a chance to grow in there due to it being located in "CAN" central. I've caught 6 walleyes since last year smallest being 11 inches biggest being 15 inches and they are all skinny and dead looking. I got one good looking one that was 14 inches this year in late April
and that was it. Never went back there again because it just sucks. You will have action draggin rapalas along the weedline from perch, white perch, and an occasional walleye but if your after bigger fish I'd go to Saltonstall. I'd rather catch a trout than a walleye at least trout fight harder... Also some really old guy with a bottle of jack daniels in one hand told me that the DEP netted a 28 inch brusier walleye in there. Anybody else fish Batterson?
