The Nutmeg Chapter of Trout Unlimited will lead a fishing outing in the fly fishing only area of the Saugatuck River on Saturday, March 31, at 8 a.m.
The Doc Skerlick Fly Fishing Area is located not far from the Merritt Parkway, along Ford Road in Westport. Click here for directions. Parking is available along the road.
The fly fishing only area is easily accessible and a great place for new anglers to learn and practice skills. As a Trout Management Area it is open, catch and release, year round.
You will need waders, Connecticut fishing License and trout stamp (a new requirement for fishing in Trout Management Areas and for harvesting trout), and fly rod and gear. Members of Nutmeg TU will be on hand to help.
