Nutmeg chapter Trout Unlimited is particularly grateful to Ron Merly for allowing the use of his
Flyfisher’s Guide to Connecticut, on which most of the “Where to Go” section is based (although the book includes much more information pertinent to local fishing, including more fishing and access points).
