Fishing is available in all public ponds and lakes if you have a state fishing license, available at the town clerk’s office in town hall. For privately owned ponds and lakes, permission from the owner must be obtained. Particularly popular is the Saugatuck Reservoir off Route 53 (a permit is required, see below), and the Saugatuck River which winds through town south of the Samuel Senior Dam.

Aquarion offers fishing permits (separate from state fishing licenses) that allow access to reservoirs in Weston, Redding (including the Saugatuck), Monroe, and Shelton. They are free to Weston residents and available at the town clerk’s office.
