It seems like here in CT., the fall stocking was smaller in numbers than in the past. Sad This time of year I can usually get a few trout when the bass are slowing down. Have you heard of a reduction in stocking in your state?

Trout have all but disappeared around the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel

There are still many small pan trout but if you are fishing for the big daddy's like 5 to 10 ilbs you are out-of-luck. The Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel at one time was LOADED with those big gray trout(weakfish) but they are gone. They do have a re-stocking effort in the works and they have placed many restrictions on them too. It is a shame if you ask me. Those fish were fished ruthllessly and relentlessly until they were gone. I admit I was guilty of that too before I realized "you can catch a fish right out of existence". Hopefully they will return in big numbers. It also has a lot to do with the bait fish situation. The bunker or alwives are gone too, at least in big numbers, (Maybe the Striper ate 'em all or the commercial boys fish THEM to the brink too.).
As far as Speckle trout go, we get quite a few of those still but there isn't really much size to them. On a recent trip we caught 50 fish and could keep I think 2 of them because they didn't meet minimum state regs.

Our alwives are almost depleted as well here. Bunker still come in, but not in the numbers of past years. Our striper fishing has rebounded as well as the fluke. Min. size regulations have seemed to help as well as limiting commercial takes. They still need to work on the commercial boys dragging the death out of the ell grass beds. Now if we can bring back the flat fish to their old glory Cool
