DEEP wants to hear from trout anglers
Meetings to be held throughout CT

The Fisheries Division of the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection is in the midst of mapping a path forward for trout and salmon fisheries here in Connecticut, with the goal of optimizing the quality of our salmonid fisheries and maximizing the utilization of fish produced at State Fish Hatcheries.

To that end, officials would like to meet with anglers and hear what you have to say. They will be hosting a series of discussions throughout the month of October.

These meetings are free to attend, however, to make sure we have adequate space for everyone we are asking for an RSVP.  You can use one of the links provided on the first page of Sept. 27 weekly fishing report (once the link opens, select the register button), call 860-424-4185, or email

Each meeting will begin with a brief presentation about the Fisheries Division’s management of trout and salmon to date and then expand to discussion on four key focal points related to trout and salmon fishing

• What makes a good fishing trip?

• Where can the Fisheries Division improve?

• What actions could be taken to increase the number people fishing?
