Connecticut’s Department of Energy & Environmental Protection (DEEP) is sponsoring “Saltwater Fishing Day” this Saturday, August 10th at Fort Trumbull State Park, New London, from 10:00 am until 2:00 p.m.(GPS address: 90 Walbach Street, New London, CT).

“Our Saltwater Fishing Day is a great opportunity to fish for a number of popular marine species, including bluefish, tautog (blackfish), scup (porgy), striped bass and fluke (summer flounder). I encourage anglers to bring their family and friends to this event and introduce them to the sport of saltwater fishing,” said DEEP Deputy Commissioner Susan Whalen. “Long Island Sound is a very special resource and offers many great fishing opportunities.”

There are a number of free activities scheduled to take place at the saltwater fishing festival, including:

· Fishing and crabbing from the pier, which will be staffed by certified fishing instructors from DEEP’s CARE program.

· Fish activities and games for youngsters.

· Fishing instruction.

Free bait will be provided along with a limited number of fishing poles, but you are encouraged to bring your own.

The second annual Saltwater Fishing Day is part of DEEP’s No Child Left Inside® initiative focusing on introducing families to the outdoors, building the next generation of environmental stewards and showcasing Connecticut’s State Parks and Forests. It is also a program of DEEP’s and Connecticut Aquatic Resources Education (CARE) Programs, under which certified instructors pass along information and expertise they’ve gained while angling in local waters.

The Saltwater Fishing event is free and no pre-registration is required. For more information on “Saltwater Fishing Day” email or call DEEP at 860-424-3973. More information on No Child Left Inside® can be found at
