At noon, Governor Malloy will join a group of 1 st and 5 th graders from Hamden's Helen Street School and Ridge Hill School at Lake Wintergreen in Hamden for an annual Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) trout stocking event in preparation for the opening day of fishing.

Also participating will be DEEP Commissioner Rob Klee, Mayor Scott Jackson, school teachers and administrators, and other state and local officials. Opening day of fishing is on April 19.
