DEEP: Trout seeking cool areas

Trout fishing is expected to be fair this weekend, according to the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection in its weekly fishing report.

“Conditions for trout fishing remain fair. Water levels are dropping following steep flushing flows from the line of storms earlier this week,” the weekly report reads. “While most of the rivers are entering the summer doldrums – too warm for trout, there are a few here and there. Best bets are to seek out smaller streams and our Wild Trout Management Areas (tend to have good cold flow year round).  Other places to try include the Qunnipiac River (Gorge Area), Salmon River, Scantic River, Mianus River, Norwalk River, Hammonasset River, and Bigelow Brook. As usual very good reports from the Farmington River (West Branch and mainstem) down to Unionville.”

There’s a chance later this week (on Wednesday, July 25) to fish the Farmington and attend the quarterly meeting of the Connecticut Council of Trout Unlimited. Click here for more information.

Weekly fishing report; thermal refuges closed

A heat wave is expected this weekend. If you do go fishing, target species that will not be traumatized by high temperatures and exercise care if doing catch-and-release.

On some trout waters, thermal refuges have been closed to fishing. Watch for signs and obey laws with regard to fishing a proper distance from those streams.

Here is the latest weekly fishing report from the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection.
