One of the most desirable lakes in Connecticut
If I were to grab from a plethora of descriptive adjectives to capture the true essence and beauty of Lower Bolton Lake, serene andÂ tranquil would be an understatement and overly-used words as scintillating and dreamy are to a dashing heartthrob Eric Bana(yes, I am a big fan of this Aussie actor). Lower Bolton Lake has special place in my heart as a real estate agent. My very first listing was a ranch situated in Vernon Branch Road where the sun rises from the left wing of the house. It did not take long for this memorable home to sell. Fifteen days was all it took for the very lucky ownersâ€™ offer to get accepted.
Unequivocally, the vastness of the lake combined by the clear and peaceful water make properties on this lake very highly-coveted. The Town of Bolton tests the water four times a year to maintain the quality of the lake. It also imposed restriction on motor boats to 6 horsepower. The lake is approximately 175 acres.
For fishing aficionados, a variety of fish species thrives on this lake: largemouth bass, yellow perch, black crappie and sunfish. In the summer, bass fishing is more pervasive. Canoeing, kayaking and boat paddling are the favorite recreational activities of the residents. Others bask in the sun from their own private domain.
Invasive and non-invasive plants are generally scarce on Lower Bolton Lake. TheyÂ are only present in some shallow areas in moderate densities.
A state-owned boat launchÂ is located off Rt. 44 right after Keeney Road. Its proximity to Hartford, 10 to 15-minute drive, has driven lakefront hunters toward this part of the town.
