Don’t forget, a 2010 saltwater fishing license is required to fish the marine waters of Connecticut. Also, if you intend to fish above the Merritt Parkway bridge on the Housatonic River, you also need a Connecticut freshwater license. You can purchase these from your local bait & tackle shop, such as Newtown Bait & Tackle, or at Town/City Hall.
