These peaceful lakes with their tiny islands have long been admired by passers-by on busy Route 34. When we opened the Maltby Lakes for hiking and fishing in 1994, the Regional Water Authority fulfilled the dream of their designer. Back in the 1860's, Caleb Maltby had plans to combine water supply and public recreation at the reservoirs he created for the Fair Haven Water Company. The lakes are named in his honor. Although only minutes from downtown New Haven, you'll find that you're sharing the solitude with many deer, wild turkey and a variety of birds and waterfowl.
Maltby Lake No. 2 in West Haven is 23 acres and has a maximum depth of 32 feet. It is one of three reservoirs owned by the South Central Connecticut Regional Water Authority in West Haven. The lake is surrounded by forest. Fishing is allowed by special permit, but boats are prohibited.
Maltby Lake No. 3, at 25.3 acres, is the largest of the Maltby reservoirs owned by the South Central Connecticut Regional Water Authority in West Haven. The maximum depth of Maltby Lake No. 3 is 26 feet. The lake is bordered by forest to the north and west and by Route 34 to the southeast. The lake is open for fishing by special permit, but boats are prohibited. Compared to the other Maltby Lakes, Maltby Lake No. 3 supports the richest community of aquatic plants, with a total of 10 species.
