Lake Isles is located in North Stonington and is a small natural lake within the Thames River Drainage Basin. A small dam on the outlet has raised the water level slightly. The watershed is 323 acres of predominantly undeveloped woods and wetland. The lake is fed by five small wetland streams, as well as by surface runoff and bottom springs. It drains into Lake of Isles Brook to the northwest, which feeds into tributaries of Poquetanuck Cove on the Thames River. The shoreline is wooded with very little residential development.
The transparency of the lake is relatively clear and transparent to the bottom. The bottom of the lake consists of gravel and broken ledge overlain in places with organic muck. The fishing should be good for pickerel, crappie, bullhead and eels; and fair for sunfish.
