March is the traditional time here in Connecticut that most trout waters are officially closed for fishing and trout stocking for the upcoming season has begun. There are plenty of opportunities to trout fish through out the year by visiting one of the open Trout Management Areas - TMAs. Make sure you review the regulations for the body of water you are planning to fish before heading out.

SPRING TROUT STOCKING HAS BEGUN- DEEP Inland Fisheries staff began the 2013 spring trout stockings this week. Among the areas scheduled to be stocked sometime in the next two weeks are many of the state's Trout Management Areas (TMA's). Note that early spring stockings are very dependent on weather and site conditions.
