Billy Clapp Lake

Billy Clapp Lake is located approximately two miles northeast of the Town of Stratford.  This lake (actually a reservoir) offers good fishing for a variety of species including bass, Walleye, panfish, Rainbow Trout, and Kokanee.  Species composition in Billy Clapp Lake is influenced heavily by outmigrating fish from connected Banks Lake.  Kokanee fishing at Billy Clapp Lake varies year-to-year, but when it is good, Kokanee exceeding 20 inches can be caught routinely during late-winter through early-spring.
