Wachusett and Sudbury Reservoir Fishing Guide

Learn about fishing and recreation on the Wachusett and Sudbury Reservoirs.

The Wachusett Reservoir, together with the Quabbin Reservoir and Ware River, provides the source water supply for 2.5 million people in the Commonwealth. The Sudbury Reservoir is the system's reserve, or backup, supply. The reservoirs and the land surrounding them are managed to protect water quality, enhance the ecological integrity and ensure the future protection of these valuable natural resources from pollution, encroachment and environmentally damaging public use. Fishing is allowed with restrictions at both the Wachusett and Sudbury Reservoirs.
