Connecticut's opening day is the same as RI now, second saturday in April.

They switched a couple years ago and the trout guy's don't like it because they fished RI's opener then the CT the following week!

Nice, doing Reynolds there this spring didn't want it to be the first day it is open. It has been a while since I was there not to mention we got waxed. 20 pounds or so out.

@Joe P got it right.

When is Opening Day in Connecticut?
Opening Day of the trout season is the second Saturday in April beginning at 6 a.m.

Taken from: http://www.ct.gov/deep/cwp/view.asp?a=2696&q=322702

That would make it April 14  :nod:
