Many boat ramps give plentiful and easy access to fresh-water and salt-water bodies in Connecticut's many lakes and ponds in state parks and forests, as well as Long Island Sound.

Opening Day of trout fishing season in Connecticut is April 21. Connecticut fishing licenses are required for anyone 16 years of age or older fishing in the Inland District. Licenses are issued on a calendar year basis and expire on December 31. Non-resident season fishing licenses are $40. Non-resident three-day fishing licenses are $16. Licenses may be purchased at any Connecticut town hall, designated tackle shop, or on line at www.ct.gov/dep.

A Connecticut Angler's Guide can be obtained anywhere you can purchase a fishing license. Generally, fishing licenses are not required for anyone fishing in the marine district. A personal use lobster license is required for lobsters; it costs $60.

Connecticut has more than 180 public lakes and ponds and thousands of miles of rivers and streams filled with gamefish and panfish including bass, trout, large walleye, pike or bluegills. The Farmington and Housatonic Rivers are two prized fishing waters.

Trout parks are Connecticut ponds or streams that will be stocked weekly with trout from the state's fish hatcheries. Eleven water bodies in Connecticut have been designated as Trout Parks. Trout parks are located in easily accessible areas to enhance trout fishing opportunities for young anglers and novice anglers as well as for those with mobility challenges.
