Location of the mouth within Connecticut

Bigelow Brook is a river in northeastern "Connecticut, flowing from "Mashapaug Lake in "Union to its confluence with the Still River in "Eastford.

Bigelow Brook is formed in "Union, Connecticut at the outflow of "Mashapaug Lake. After leaving the lake, it flows south through the "Bigelow Hollow State Park in Union, and into Bigelow Pond. After exiting Bigelow Pond, the brook flows to the southwest and then into Myers Pond. After flowing out of Myers Pond, Bigelow Brook begins flowing to the south. It then leaves Union and serves as the border between the towns of "Ashford, Connecticut, and "Eastford, Connecticut. The brook then changes direction and starts flowing to the east, into the town of Eastford. It turns again shortly after, back to the south, and continues on a generally southerly or south-southeasterly path through Eastford. Bigelow Brook eventually ends at its confluence with the Still River, forming the "Natchaug River.[1]

Bigelow Brook is popular with fishermen from the area. "Trout are one type of fish that swim in its waters.
