Freshwater Fishing Guide


River and Stream Regulations


Determining fishing regulations is a simple two-step process:

  1. Check the species regulation page for general statewide Species, Legal Methods, and Limits regulations.
  2. Look up the waterbody in this alphabetical list of rivers and streams to find any special regulations that apply. If the water is not listed or if there are no special regulations, then the statewide regulations apply.
Examples of management categories which have special regulations:
  • Trout Management Areas (TMA): High quality trout fisheries in rivers and streams offering year-round opportunities.
  • Trout Parks: Easy to fish, frequently stocked until mid-May.
  • Trophy Trout Areas: Stocked with a higher proportion of fish that are larger than the standard stocked trout.
  • Sea-run Trout Streams: Areas where brown trout are know to migrate to and from Long Island Sound.
  • Wild Trout Management Areas (WTMA): There are three classes of WTMAs:
    • Class 1: Catch and release only, open year-round, use of barbless single-hook artificial lures and barbless single-hook flies only.
    • Class 2: Two (2) trout per angler per day limit, trout must be 12 inches or larger to keep from opening day to last day of February.
    • Class 3: Five (5) fish per angler per day limit, trout must be 9 inches or larger to keep from opening day to last day of February.
  • Lower River/Tidal Waters: Designated rivers and streams with no closed season including the entire Connecticut and Thames rivers, and downstream most sections of the Coginchaug, Farmington, Housatonic, Mattabesset, Mystic, Naugatuck, Niantic, Quinnipiac, Salmon, and Yantic rivers.
Public Access to Fishing Waters: Public access to fishing waters is restricted to rights-of-way designated by poster or by permission of landowner. On state-leased streams, fishermen must wade or stay near the stream bank as indicated by signs.
  • In Connecticut, the bottom of the stream may be privately owned and anglers must respect the desire of the property owner. When in doubt of ownership, the best course of action is to ask permission.

The following sections of rivers and streams are available for public fishing through the courtesy of the landowner, or where indicated by posters, through cooperative agreement, lease, or state ownership. Please note that private property may change ownership and so may public access at anytime.

The CT DEEP Interactive Trout Stocking Map provides you with access locations and the date the water was last stocked.

Please note the following: The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection continues to work toward restoring unencumbered fishing access to the Skungamaug River in the vicinity of Woodbridge Road in Coventry. Until such time, DEEP has temporarily suspended public use of an existing easement located at 80 Woodbridge Road. Stocking the waters of the Skungamaug River downstream of the Woodbridge Road bridge has also been suspended until public use is restored. Use of the easement for purposes of fisheries research and management actions by DEEP staff will continue. We encourage patience on the part of the fishing public while this matter is resolved and access for fishing restored. For alternate fishing locations on the Skungamaug and other nearby streams, please visit Trout Stocking Maps, which provides links to the Interactive Trout Stocking Map and PDF maps of stocked rivers/streams. Specific alternate locations that we recommend are:

  1. Skungamaug River at South Road in Coventry. Creaser Park is located there and has good access, plus a trail system.
  2. Skungamaug River at Rt. 44 in Coventry behind the Glass Museum is another good location.
