Whether you’re fly fishing the Housatonic or Farmington Rivers, catching monster Northern Pike in Bantam Lake, or even cruising Long Island Sound for favorites like fluke, porgy, sea bass, and bluefish, fishing in Connecticut has never been more popular.
And thanks to our friends at the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP), now it’s even easier to get out there, with online resources and a website filled with tips, guides, maps and more. Check out a few of the great sites available to help you reel in the big one in Connecticut.
The 2020 fishing season is now open. DEEP is encouraging all anglers to follow social distancing practices.
