Over at Hillyer's word was status quo, lots more guys coming in to gear up and most of the angling effort was concentrated on trout. With so much stocking being done, there's plenty of incentive to get out there and fish. With salmon in the Shetucket, Seefs put into various ponds around the state and lots of trout stocked into the water between, there are a lot of hungry fish out there that are eager to bite. Saltwater enthusiasts are heading for the Housy and catching decent numbers of winter stripers as well.
