The state DEEP began stocking many ponds and waterways across CT with trout in early February.
Fishermen of all ages and genders couldn’t wait until the fishing season officially opened on Saturday, April 19 and flocked to their favorite fishing holes, poles in hand and bait at the ready.
Some, like Stevie Cifarelli were lucky and quickly caught their quota. Others stood by all day long without ever getting a bite.
Fishing is one activity where patience is extremely necessary, and catch and release is the fish’s favorite method of this sport.
