Highland Lake is a body of water located within the boundaries of Winchester, Connecticut. It has a surface area of 445 acres [1] and an average depth of 24 feet. [2] The lake is long but not wide, extending approximately three miles from north to south but only half a mile at its widest. [3] It narrows at two points and therefore divides into three distinct sections, known (from north to south) as First Bay, Second Bay, and Third Bay. [4] Highland Lake achieves its maximum depth of 63 feet toward the center of Second Bay. [5]

The lake is popular for recreational purposes, including boating and fishing. The Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection stocks the lake annually with fish, and considers it a Trophy Trout and Bass Management Lake. [6]

Highland Lake is encircled by Wakefield Boulevard, which is a little over seven miles long, [7] and its shores are heavily built up with residences (both seasonal and year-round) and dotted with many docks.
