Example text

On a clear day, looking through the arched tunnel of the bridge, sunlight dances on the river making it shine and sparkle on its way to fill the Quabbin. Anglers may want to give the river a try for trout or fish the Quabbin itself. Boats can be rented at Gate 31, but you must have a Massachusetts fishing license. Smallmouth bass, lake trout, rainbow trout and salmon all cruise the depths of the reservoir. On my last outing, I caught only a small bass, but I had the pleasure of watching two bald eagles come and go from an island where they may have had a nest.

I passed stands of cedar, sassa- Southwestern Rhode Island to Narragansett Bay 35 fras with bright orange leaves shaped like mittens, low-bush blueberries with leaves flashing scarlet in the sun and aspen trees showing off vivid yellow foliage against a cobalt-blue sky. In addition to the white pine, small stands of pitch pine added the touches of dark green so necessary to bring out the best of the deciduous tree’s color. ) As I was heading back to the parking lot, a goshawk gave an eerie cry, like that of a tree creaking in the wind.

Thousands of acres of forest have been left in their natural state to protect the watershed that gives much of Massachusetts its drinking water. Quabbin itself is huge; over 38 square miles of water surface and 119 miles of shoreline. Ware Great views of the reservoir can be seen from the Winsor Dam area off Route 9 in Ware. The islands you see far out in the water are actually the tops of hills that were flooded when the reservoir was created in 1939. The view here is always fantastic but especially so in the autumn when the blue of Quabbin is framed by rust-colored hills.
