REMINDER TO ANGLERS!

Fishing in or Casting into Permitted Swim Areas is Prohibited

State regulations prohibit fishing in or into a swim area that’s been permitted by DEEP. Additionally, vessels cannot be operated within a permitted swim area, and there’s a 100 foot “no-wake” zone around the perimeter.

Swim areas that have been permitted by DEEP will be marked by white buoys with orange markings, and there should be a permit number posted on the buoys. They may or may not have small orange barrier floats to further demarcate the area.

Should questions arise concerning the validity of the swim area (no permit numbers or the area appears to have been changed / enlarged or keeps moving), please contact DEEP’s Boating Division at 860-434-8638.

Fisheries Advisory Council

The Fisheries Advisory Council (FAC) is a group of dedicated citizens from all regions of the state working together for fish and fishing in Connecticut.

For more information about the FAC, please call 860-424-3474 www.ct.gov/deep/baitandtackle
