For this outing, TGF travels to Connecticut to fish the upper section of the West Branch of the Farmington River, a beautiful fishery that holds brown, rainbow, and brook trout and salmon. The Farmington, Connecticut’s only “Wild and Scenic River,” is a tailwater fishery with water temperatures cool enough for quality fishing even in the summer.
The water is easily accessible and offers various types of fishing spots, from long pools, to quick riffles, to heavy water.
Make a day of it by fishing in the morning, gathering for a streamside lunch, and fishing the late hatches in the afternoon and evening. If you stay overnight, join us for dinner.
TGF president Bert Darrow will lead this popular trip, providing tips on where and how to fish this river as well as organizing our midday picnic. I encourage anyone with an idea for another outing, fishing or otherwise, to contact me at the address below to start the conversation.
