Sea Run Trout, Thames River

  1. Sea-run trout in coastal estuaries can provide the potential for some very challenging angling success.
  2. Panfish, such as yellow perch, will be available to catch as soon as the ponds and coves of major rivers open up enough to cast a line.
  3. Shallow, weedy lakes such as Pachaug Pond, Bog Meadows and, across the border into Rhode Island, spots such as Chapman Pond and Worden Pond will begin to liven up as soon as the sun has a chance to warm its ice-free waters.
  4. The Thames River's winter population of stripers is a constant option. This time of year, even these super-abundant fish can become hard to catch at times. (Bob Sampson Jr, Norwich Bulletin)
