With the passing of Labor day, the ramp gatekeeper provided by the town is off duty for the season but the State Boat Ramp on Manchaug Pond is still open. This morning boats roared out after 6:30 a.m. for some fishing.
Manchaug Pond definitely sees less activity with the arrival of September as the children have gone back to school, the weather has brought lower temps (this morning 54F), winter drawdown necessitates the removal of the shore docked boats, and the summer camps and campgrounds sadly wind down for the close of their season.

The ramp continues to offer public access to the great pond through all seasons – leaving our summer swimming and summer sports for the enjoyment of some fall fishing, kayaking, etc and then on to winter sports of ice fishing, snowmobiling and cross country skiing … enjoy the day!
