Connecticut DEEP Inland Fisheries staff began the 2013 spring trout stockings this week. Among the areas scheduled to be stocked sometime in the next two weeks are many of the state’s Trout Management Areas (TMAs).
Early spring stockings are very dependent on weather and site conditions. (Click here for trout stocking maps.)
As of March 1, fishing season is closed on many rivers and streams, and at a number of lakes and ponds.
All 16 of the state’s Trout Management Areas remain open year-round, but all are catch-and-release only during winter and early spring.
Class I Wild Trout Management Areas are also open year-round for catch-and-release fishing.DEEP, stocking, trout
