Connecticut’s 2020 Fishing Season Opens Two Weeks Early
Anglers get your gear together because we're going fishin'!
Connecticut Governor, Ned Lamont signed the Executive Order on March 24th stating:
Opening the fishing season early in inland waters will help to limit community spread of Covid-19 by eliminating large crowds that often accompany the traditional opening day of fishing on the 2nd Saturday in April.
The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection(DEEP) also strongly suggests that social distancing be practiced while you enjoy fishing in Connecticut's inland waters. In other words this year, fishing should be a solitary event or with family members but most definitely not in large crowds.
Last week I was wondering why fishing boats were heading up Route 37 on their way to Squantz Pond State Park at 5 am as I was driving to 'work' at I-95. Fishing season is open!
