The Connecticut DEEP does a good job with weekly fishing reports throughout each and every season. These reports also contain repeated bulletins and warnings about a variety of environmental and other concerns.

One such concern are zebra mussels. Last year, these mussels were found in more locations throughout the Housatonic River and impoundments.

The presence of adult zebra mussels in Lake Housatonic was confirmed in November of 2011. Earlier that summer, adult mussels were confirmed in the Housatonic River in Massachusetts and free-floating juveniles (veligers) were found at a number of sites in the river downstream to Lake Lillinonah.
