As of Wednesday, Dec. 5, the Naugatuck River TMA (Litchfield/Campville/Harwinton area) was stocked with large Broodstock Atlantic Salmon (average weight was 7 to 10 pounds, with the largest fish being around 15 pounds.); this was the last of two stockings in this river section.
The daily creel limit is one (1) salmon per day. Salmon will be stocked into the lower Naugatuck River (Waterbury to Beacon Falls, ) and Shetucket River as flows come down — stay tuned for updates from the DEEP.
