Shore%20Fishing%20Sign_opt.jpgThis Marine Fisheries program is part of a broader Department effort to improve the quality of access and fishing to our Public Trust marine fisheries resources in CT, especially in urban areas. This unique program relies on reduced size limit regulations to allow anglers young and old alike the opportunity to experience the joy and relaxation of outdoor recreation and the satisfaction of catching their own dinner. At the same time, the design of this program assures that marine fish conservation objectives continue to be met.

Appendix A. Public Shore Fishing Access Sites where Summer Flounder/Fluke (16 inch min. length) and Scup (9 inch min. length) may be taken at a smaller length limit. Please see Marine Recreational Fishing Regulations for a complete list of marine recreational fishing regulations including creel limit and open seasons.

  2. immediately upon retention of such fish, permanently record on the voucher in ink, the date of capture and length of fish harvested;
  3. retain the voucher with the fish until such fish is taken to the home or other location where the fish is to be consumed;
  4. takes not more than two such fish per day regardless of the number of vouchers the angler may possess.
