Drive down Deerfoot, Parkerville, or Middle Roads during the summer and you’re sure to see at least one person casting their fishing line in the Sudbury Reservoir. Same goes for the causeways over Framingham and White Bagley Roads. There are no shortage of people fishing, but what exactly are they catching?
The state stocks some rivers, lakes, and reservoirs with trout from MassWildlife’s fish hatcheries each spring – among them the Assabet and Subury Rivers, the Hopkinton and Whitehall Reservoirs, and Lake Cochituate. But the Sudbury Reservoir doesn’t get such treatment.
I remember fishing in the reservoir with my brothers as a kid, but I certainly don’t remember us ever catching anything. So tell me, do you try your line in the reservoir? What do you catch? And if you want to share your secrets, where are the best fishing spots in town?
(For those of you who might wonder, as I did, I checked and shore fishing is allowed in the Sudbury Reservoir.)
