Connecticut DEEP Selects Youth “Fishing Challenge” Top Angler Awards
Top angler awards were presented last week to four Connecticut youth during DEEP’s 7th annual Trophy Fish Awards Ceremony. Each young angler participated in the “Fishing Challenge,” part of Connecticut’s Youth Fishing Passport program. The “Fishing Challenge” requires the participants to try and catch one of each of twenty common Connecticut game fish. After a successful catch, a digital photo of the angler with the fish is emailed to the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) for verification.
