Tyler Lake is located in the town of Goshen and is a natural lake within the Housatonic River Drainage Basin. Its water level was raised slightly by a masonry dam. The watershed is 4,166 acres of mostly undeveloped woods and agricultural land with moderate residential development. The lake is fed by West Side Pond Brook, Sucker Brook, a small stream and a bottom springs. It drains southward into a stream that feeds Woodridge Lake, which drains via the Marshapaug River into the East Branch Shepaug River. The shoreline is dominated by residences with the exception of a wooded marsh on the northern shore. The transparency of the lake is fair to clear with a visibility of 7-11 ft. in summer. The bottom of the lake consists of rock, sand, gravel, mud and organic muck.
Fishing should be excellent for yellow perch and bullheads, good for seasonally stocked trout; good for crappie, sunfish and rock bass; and fair for bass.
