DEEP: Bashan Lake Boat Launch

Bashan Lake Boat Launch
East Haddam

During the 2018/2019 winter season, a drawdown of 3 feet will be maintained. The boat launch area may be shallow. The lake is scheduled to be refilled by the 2019 fishing season. However, there is always a risk that refilling may not be achieved by the target date due to unusually dry weather conditions.
