Atlantic Salmon

“Last week the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) announced its schedule for its annual fall stockings of surplus broodstock Atlantic salmon.

“This fall the DEP's Inland Fisheries Division plans to release a total of 1,100 salmon into the Shetucket River and the Naugatuck River.

“An additional 200 salmon will be released into two lakes, Crystal Lake (Ellington) and Mount Tom Pond (Morris/Litchfield/Washington).”

How Much Is Connecticut’s Resident Marine License?

“We’ve seen our resident marine fishing license launch in June at $10, increase to $30, and go back down to $10 in October!

This does not bode well in the face of anglers who comprise a large part of the electorate and endorse fish and wildlife conservation.”

CT DEP on Marine Licenses


Don’t forget, a saltwater fishing license is now required to fish the marine waters of Connecticut. You can purchase one from your local bait & tackle shop, such as Newtown Bait & Tackle, or at Town/City Hall.
