Shenipsit Lake is a "hidden gem" of natural beauty located in Connecticut which epitomizes the beauty of nature. Located in quiet north central Connecticut, Shenipsit Lake provides excellent hiking trails, exemplary fishing and serene settings. For decades, Shenipsit Lake has provided a life-time of memories for individuals and families from across the state and New England.

We happily invite you to come to "The Snip" and discover its beauty while making memories for you and your family that will last forever.

A Word From Our President

It’s that time of year again – welcome to the 2015 season! The fact that you’re reading this letter means that this particularly brutal winter is almost over, and the beautiful sights and sounds of the Snip are just around the corner.

Let’s hope 2015 is just as good as or better than 2014, which was another great year at the Snip both for both fishing and sightseeing. Lots of nice fish were pulled out of the lake last year, although the hottest summer months proved to be a bit of a challenge, as usual.

We are continuing the standard derby schedule this year. You can see the dates on the Events page – add them to your calendar! Please invite any kids you can think of who may enjoy a little friendly competition. It’s always a great thing to bring young people into the wonderful world of fishing, and there’s no better place to do it than at our beloved lake. All derbies are open to the public. Please consider inviting anyone you know who may be interested in becoming a member.

Thank you and I wish you tight lines in 2015!

Shawn LaForest, SLA President
