We are a fishing and hunting club with approximately 280 members. Annually, we stock both trout and pheasant for our members. The Club owns lakefront property at the north end of Taunton Lake in Newtown, CT., where there is a boat ramp, a pavilion and boat storage areas for members. No gas engines are allowed on this scenic 125-acre spring fed lake. Taunton Lake has some excellent fishing, with abundant stocked trout, including some of trophy size. It is also an excellent largemouth and smallmouth bass lake, supporting naturally reproducing populations of these and other species.
The Club owns 155 acres in New Milford, CT which is excellent habitat for deer, turkey, pheasant, and other wild game. This property offers premier pheasant hunting and is regularly stocked twice weekly during the pheasant season. Members may also enjoy hunting and fishing on our 90 acre Falls Village, CT property, which is stocked with pheasant. A nearby parcel is also stocked by the State and is available to members with the requisite tags. The Hollenbeck River runs through this property. In addition to owned property, the Club leases over 1,000 acres located throughout Fairfield, New Haven, and Litchfield Counties. We lease a premier parcel in Southbury, CT which we believe is one of the finest pheasant cover that you will find in Connecticut.
