Hi Rookie!

Yes! The write up in the Ct. Angler's Guide is somewhat confusing.
I'd call the DEP and get the straight skinny on where on the river fishing for Smallies is legal.

Just make sure you get the name and Tel.# of the DEP official that gives you the info so if you get tagged by a warden you'll have that info at hand.
