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.”
