The launching of boats from trailers is the primary reason that invasive weeds are being spread from lake to lake in CT. When a lake becomes infected, it can drastically reduce swimming and boating enjoyment. It is very expensive to try to eradicate the weeds, and treatment is not always successful. If invasive weeds persist, there is typically a major loss in property values.
Consequently, the Amston Lake District has instituted the requirement that all boat/trailers must first be inspected. This is done at the Main beach launch area. Trailer launch of boats is not allowed from private property.
We hope that for the safety of our lake you will use your boat exclusively in Amston lake. However, if you do visit another lake, you should air dry your boat, trailer, and fishing gear for at least a week (warm and no rain).
Beach and Boat Launch Hours: 7:00 am to 9:00 pm
Boat/Trailer Inspectors on call (when available)
