Depends if the salmon are broadstock or not. They're not where they are, so youth salmon are catch and release and they can keep 2 trout a day. In Thomaston where I fish, it depends on which side of the dam i'm on. Above it is one salmon a day in the open season and trout catch and release only with an artificial lure with one hook and no additional weight. Below is fishable by all methods, but salmon must be released and 2 trout over 15" can be kept.

Hi,

Suggest you read the rules on fishing for stocked Salmon in rivers.

Are you talking about the tanker truck that went off Rt 8 in Thomaston? It spilled above the dam (and is still being cleaned), but never hit the river. Salmon were stocked in the campville section again the 2nd week in November.

OK, either there are no more trout left in the lower naugy like between Naugatuck through Beacon Falls or I just plain suck at fishing at this time of year. In all my time fishing which isnt really much even with fresh Ive never really fished the late season like this. Ive been throwing a lot of different lures out there along with works of 3 different kinds. Is it what Im using? Do they only like shiners at this time of year? I do very well in the spring and summer!

Went today and bought a aerator, bait bucket, and shiners and hit a few spots and still not even a nibble! I did manage to fall in the river in one spot when I tripped on some shrubs weaseling my way around a curve and broke through 1" thick ice with my shin!! Ouch that freakin hurt!! Went up to just below my pockets which was good as I had my phone clipped there and my remote for my car. Praise the lord it was warm today as I still fished for another 2/5 hours before the sun went down and it started to get too chilly with soaked pants and socks! LOL What a dumb a$$!!!

Fishfinder,
Although I definitely appreciate your enthusiasm for fishing, especially river fishing in the winter, it is important to know what is legal. SeaDog recommended that you read the regulations about fishing in the Naugatuck River during open season for salmon. From your last post I can tell you either didn't understand them or didn't read them, so I went ahead and did the work for you. There are more, but these are the ones that are important for your situation:

1) During the open season in the rivers, the legal method for taking Atlantic salmon is limited to angling using a single fly, or an artificial lure with a single free swinging hook and no additional weight can be added to the line above the fly or lure.

2) From October 1st through March 31st, fishing for other species in these designated Atlantic Salmon Broodstock Areas is restricted to the gear legal for Atlantic salmon.

I am not your mother or the DEEP so I am not going to tell you what to do, but knowing these regs you might want to reconsider posting about shiners in January Very Happy
