Fishing in Connecticut, A brief look

While small and densely populated, Connecticut still offers a 250-mile coastline on Long Island Sound, 160 lakes and ponds and over 300 streams, which are stocked annually with trout. More unique fishing opportunities can be had along two major rivers, the Connecticut River and the Thames River.

On the Thames River there is a run of American shad that results in fabulous sport fishing in warmer months.
