There were many narrow inlets to explore in this area. If a moderate paddle was on the agenda it was easy to get into the Housatonic River at the mouth of Long Island Sound. Other areas accessible from here are Charles Island and Milford Harbor.
There was an abundance of nesting shore birds that were teaching their young swimming and fishing skills. No motor boats allowed inside the WMA.
Due to the extreme lack of water during low tide, the best time to paddle here would be approx. 2 hours before, but no more than 2 hours after high tide. There weren't any places to pullout and rest inside the WMA, but a short paddle on the Housatonic and you are able to pullout at a Marina boat ramp to use the facilities, etc.
Tidal information is critical to this area. Use local information.
