I wasn't sure what to expect on my first trip to catch stocked salmon. On the ride there I asked how many we were allowed to catch/keep. My buddy replied "There's six of us, if one of us catches a fish, it's a decent day."
Apparently the CT DEP has been stocking broodstock salmon for years now. Some guys that I've talked to love the fishing. Other guys seem to look down their noses at it. Personally, anything that bends the rod is good enough for me. Especially when it's about the only fishing to be had through the winter months!
The ranking score is used to determine how "popular" a trip or location is. It is calculated based off of a weighted average of the number of reviews and the user ratings. For example, a trip with 2 reviews and an average rating of 5 will have a lower "ranking score" than one with 10 reviews and an average rating of 4. This is because even though the first trip has a better average rating, it has not been reviewed as much as the second trip, so it is not as "popular". In the future we may modify the ranking score to take in additional factors, such as the number of views, comments, and photos.
