• Connecticut Atlantic Salmon Stocking Update

DEEP began spawning salmon at the Kensington Hatchery this week and approximately 600 spawned salmon will be available for stocking. Tomorrow, Friday, 11/2, DEEP plans to stock approximately 150 broodstock salmon into the Shetucket River.

Next week, DEEP expects to stock another 450 fish into the upper Naugatuck (150 salmon), lower Naugatuck River (150 salmon) and the Shetucket River (150 fish).

These stockings will bring the number of broodstock Atlantic salmon stocked this fall to approximately 1, 800 fish (besides the Naugatuck & Shetucket rivers, Crystal Lake and Mount Tom Pond have also been stocked with salmon this fall). Some additional salmon may also become available at the end of November.”
