Hunting, shooting and fishing trips Connecticut: united states

Hunting and fishing trips in Connecticut: United States: known for strong wild turkey and record holding largemouth bass.


Among the creeks, ponds, lakes and rivers, you'll notice Connecticut has a staple offering of great wildlife and especially waterfowl. From Canada geese, to spring birds and wild turkey, they come in large numbers hardly unnoticed. Natchaug State Forest flaunts a varied selection of wildlife suited to all hunting preferences, with muzzleloader deer, turkey archery, or smaller game such as waterfowl and pheasant drives. Peoples State Forest on the other hand excels in its wild turkey population, the area is ripe with them and it has become a local favourite for firearms and archery hunts. Connecticut has over 180 public waters, full with bass, large walleye, pike and trout. A fine example of its prized waters are the Farmington and Housatonic Rivers. Bass seekers have top-rated Bashan Lake, Candlewood Lake and Mashapaug Lake where the record holding largemouth was caught. The state has opportunities all years round with powerful Atlantic salmon at over 20 pounds at Naugatuck River, an athletic challenge for a fly-fisher looking for a thrill.
