Connecticut Fishing 
Fishing is great family fun and a healthy outdoor activity enjoyed by young and old alike. The DEP stocks many lakes and streams with a wide variety of fish species throughout the year. Some of the other programs developed by DEP to enhance fishing opportunities include fishing education for children and families, the creation of special fishing areas such as Trout Parks, and an aggressive program to allow passage of fish from our ocean waters to the northern stretches of many of the state’s larger streams. Opportunities for tremendous saltwater fishing action abound at many different coastal access points along Long Island Sound. As a result, Connecticut offers some of the best and most diverse fishing possibilities in the country.
