The Wepawaug River starts in Woodbridge and then flows through Orange and Milford. the CT DEEP stocks about 400 trout in the spring, and the area from Bridge Street down about 2 miles to the old New Haven-Derby RR (Rte. 162) is restricted to children under 16. The fishing season is the 3rd Saturday in April to November 30.
Just east of the Wepawaug, the Indian River in Orange is a small brook that is not stocked but that does have a wild trout population. It calls for a fly rod no more than 6.5′ long.
