Fishing outing by RSVP on Wednesday, May 18, 2016.  We are taking reservations for the 2nd annual Nutmeg Trout Unlimited trip to the Limestone Trout Club located in Canaan, Connecticut.  Reservations close at 6 PM on May 16.  This is a fly fishing only outing. You will be fishing primarily from shore, with a few boats available, so your waders are optional.  This is a rain or shine event so bring extra clothes and rain gear.  Please arrive between 8:30 and 9:00 AM (orientation will start at 8:45) and plan to stay as long as you want (until dusk).  The $30 fee includes lunch. All of the money is paid to the club by cash or a check payable to Nutmeg Chapter TU when you arrive.

There are 3 deep (70+ feet) quarry ponds and 3 shallow ponds providing a variety of venues and conditions.  While most members practice catch and release, catch and kill is allowed.  Lessons learned from last year: bring some egg patterns, and bring bug spray for the ticks.
