Wyassup Lake is located in the town of North Stonington and is a small natural lake in the Pawcatuck River Drainage Basin. The water level was raised slightly by the construction of a dam on the outlet. The watershed is 518 acres of mostly undeveloped woods or wetland. The lake is fed by two wetland streams from the north and drains southeast into Wyassup Brook., which flows into the Green Falls River and then the Pawcatuck River. The shoreline is mostly wooded, with a moderate number of homes. About 300 yards on the southwestern shore is within the Pachaug State Forest.

The transparency of the lake is fair with visibility of 8-10 ft. in late summer. The bottom of the lake consists of sand, gravel, rubble and boulders. The fishing should be seasonally good for stocked trout with some chance for a holdover; good for bass, eels and sunfish; fair to good for pickerel and sunfish; and fair for bullheads.
