Senator Cathy Osten has responded as follows to our recent inquiry on the continuation of the Atlantic Salmon stocking program on the Shetucket River in eastern CT:
Dear Tom, Thank you for your e-mail. As co-chair of the legislature’s Sportsmen’s Caucus, I’m actively working with the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection on the Atlantic Salmon stocking and other programs. While the department is planning to reduce the state’s trout stock, I understand that they do intend to maintain the Atlantic Salmon program. I will keep you posted as I learn more. Sincerely, Cathy Catherine A. Osten State Senator, 19th District Assistant President Pro Tempore Proudly representing the residents of Columbia, Franklin, Hebron, Lebanon, Ledyard, Lisbon, Marlborough, Montville, Norwich, and Sprague Legislative Office Building, Room 2100 Hartford, CT 06106
Barring any changes, we'll have another great fall fishing opportunity! We have access to some great runs on the Shetucket (see Jeff's 1st salmon above) and will be booking day trips once the program begins. Visit us on http://team7x.com for latest news.
