Volunteers treat veterans to fishing day trip on Candlewood Lake

DANBURY, Conn. — A winning weather day Tuesday brought 25 veterans to Candlewood Lake in Danbury to head out on the water and cast a line.

It’s simply known as “The Veterans’ Fishing Tournament,” where Gaylord Hospital and the CT Bass Nation donate all the gear, and volunteers donate their time and their powerboats to treat veterans from all over the area to a day of fishing.
