Candlewood lake
« on: Apr 26, 2020, 05:40 PM »
Does anybody know if the lake is open to launch a boat. Or is it open for residents only.  Thanks

Not sure about out of staters but I have had no issues launching in CT. I have seen out of state people launching at Bantam, Lilly, Zoar recently.

If you are a nonresident you need to buy an invasive species stamp. $20 I think.

 Is this new this year on the stamp. I've fished candlewood for many years. And this is the 1st I've heard of it.

Don't take my word for it if you are from out of state I have no idea what local enforcement may do.  I know I dislike most CT fishing venues in favor of NY lakes but haven't had the balls to bring my boat out of state, mass the executive order says only people with mass registrations can use the launches...its crazy out there.

The invasive species stamp is new this year. The state added a $5 fee on all our boat registrations this year and nonresident need to purchase the stamp for fresh water use.

I love how they take the word "tax" and call it a "stamp".  F this state.

Even saw sign to have the "stamp" at Congamond if you fish the south pond.  I don't even think CT stocks Congamond (could be wrong) yet they want you to pay a $5 tax to fish a place that has a reciprocal license agreement.
