U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service ends Connecticut River salmon restoration 

After 45 years of raising Atlantic salmon in New England for a four-state effort to restore the fish to the Connecticut River, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service is moving out of the salmon hatchery business.

The move comes due to a lack of recovery and the low numbers returning to the river.

atlantics are the kings of fly fishing. There is simply no other fish that will fight so hard pound for pound. Bring them back!
