Based on the latest (2009) stocking info, here's where you'll find the trout in eastern CT waters:
Natchaug River Browns 6200
Other river totals include the Shetucket, 7700; Yantic, 8500; Willimantic 10,000; Moosup, 7000; Hop River, 3500; Little River, 3900; Quinebaug, 12,000; Mashamoquet Brook, 2000; Mount Hope, 7000; Lower Five Mile River, 3600; Still River, 2000. Access and wading opportunities on the Quinebaug can be difficult despite the numbers, although there are good areas for launching a canoe or kayak. All other rivers are easily wadeable with the Moosup, Willi, and Yantic open all year. All others listed close FEBRUARY 29 until opening day, April 21.
Spent a few hours on the Moosup this week with new friend Steve. Check out his custom made art knives , true works of art! The levels and flow are perfect, fish are deep and not very active yet; a few small stoneflies were showing; expect more as the temperatures move upward into the 50's.
We have 3 free intro casting clinics scheduled from April thru June at this time. If we can arrange something for your group, association or other, let us know!
