Reedy to fish in Old Lyme

Old Lyme — Andy Huynh and his son Leo, 12, of East Windsor went fishing Thursday among the reeds of the Lieutenant River.

Leo had finished his distance learning for the day — schools are closed due to the coronavirus pandemic — and the pair decided to spend some time outside in a not-too-popular place before the predicted rain.

"Who knows what we´ll catch here," Andy said, "Hopefully, we'll find out."

Thursday was the traditional opening day of inland fishing season, though Gov. Ned Lamont had allowed for an earlier start this year in a bid to avoid the large crowds that typically would gather at waterways on opening day.
