On Tuesday, April 19, 2016, Nutmeg TU will hold its monthly meeting at 7 PM at Marissa’s Ristorante, 6540 Main St, Trumbull, CT, just South of where I-25 crosses Route 111.

Patrick Fowler will be breaking down the 3 types of streams in CT and the best time of year to fish them.  We will look at specific techniques for each location and the best patterns for each.  Patrick will go over gear specifics as well.  The presentation will focus on CT streams that are accessible to every angler.  After the presentation members will have a much more comprehensive understanding of how to fish CT to make the most out of a season.

Making the most out of your fishing season will cover stocked streams, wild streams, and tail-waters.  The three fundamental types of streams each offer their own unique challenges.  Patrick will focus on when, where and how to fish each stream effectively using a strategy developed specifically for the state of Connecticut.  In addition, he will cover the varying conditions to be expected on Connecticut’s trout streams and how to adjust angling approaches for the day to day fluctuations in trout behavior.

The focus of this presentation is to enable the audience to maximize time on the water.  By knowing what streams to hit when, and knowing how to fish them when you get there, you will cut down on the learning curve and you will have much more productive time on the water.

Patrick has worked for Orvis for over two years and was recently voted onto the Nutmeg TU board as Conservation chair.  He has a Bachelors degree in environmental science with emphasis on wildlife policy and fish biology.  He attended the University of Tasmania Australian Maritime College graduate school in their Aquaculture program with emphasis on salmonid biology and behavior.  A New England native, Patrick has been fly fishing since the age of 12 and has fished extensively throughout the state and beyond.
