Fishing in Connecticut: Online Resources and Mobile Apps to Enhance the Experience

By    |   Monday, 16 Nov 2015 01:31 AM

Using a fish finder attached to a boat was once the most technologically advanced aspect of fishing in Connecticut. Today's high-tech world has led to the creation of several online resources and mobile applications to help anglers in Connecticut.

Here are four online resources and mobile apps to enhance fishing in the state.

1. The Department of Energy & Environmental Protection Website
Fishing in the state is under the province of the Department of Energy & Environmental Protection. Each week, the department posts fishing reports online to help anglers enjoy their pastime. Not only do the reports indicate where and how the fishing is at the present, they also include information on which insects are hatching so that fly fishermen can better chose the right fly to attract fish.

2. IFish Connecticut
The company The App Door has created fishing apps for every state in the country. The app for Connecticut is named IFish Connecticut. It provides information on more than 1,600 lakes, ponds and reservoirs in the state. When placed on a cell phone, the app can detect potential fishing locations nearby and provide information on them. The app can help anglers determine the best times to fish, help with tips on fishing for specific species and more. This app is currently available through the Google Play store.

3. Connecticut Lakes – Fishing
This app is only available for devices using iOS 6.1 or greater. It was released on the iTunes site in late May 2015. According to iTunes, it provides fishermen with information on what species can be found in lakes, the depth of the lakes, and more, including what kind of facilities are available at each of the lakes. At present, there are no customer reviews of the app.

4. Facebook
Facebook has many pages and groups dedicated to helping fishermen in Connecticut. One of the more active resources is a public group called Fishing in Connecticut. The state's Bureau of Natural Resources also share information about fishing and other topics on its Connecticut Fish and Wildlife Facebook page.
