Wilson Lake is located west of Wilton village. Its main inlet and outlet, Wilson Stream, enters the northwest side of the lake and exits the eastern tip meandering east into the Sandy River. Water quality in Wilson Lake is suitable for cold-water game fish. Salmonid spawning and nursery habitat is available in the inlet. A small native salmon population utilizes this habitat to provide a limited number of wild fish, which are supplemented with periodic stockings to maintain a fishery. Lake trout naturally reproduce using the rocky shoals to spawn and maintain a productive fishery. Salmonid growth is good despite competition from warm water fish species. The lake is occasionally stocked with brook trout to supplement a small native population. Wilson lake is accessible via a public launch site located just south of downtown Wilton. The lake is open to fishing under general law in both the summer and the winter season. Fishes: Landlocked salmon, Minnows, Lake Trout (togue) Golden shiner, Brook trout Fallfish (chub), Rainbow smelt, White sucker, Smallmouth bass, Hornpout (bullhead), White perch, Redbreast sunfish, Yellow perch, Pumpkinseed sunfish, Chain Pickerel, American eel, Landlocked alewife.
