A forecast for snow and wind on Saturday, March 18, has postponed Nutmeg TU’s small stream tips event again. The next scheduled date is Saturday, March 25, at 10 a.m.
The location remains Lake Mohegan in Fairfield. Participants should gather in the main parking lot at the beach at Lake Mohegan, located at the intersection of Morehouse Highway and Tahmore Drive in Fairfield.
The event had been postponed to Saturday, March 18, due to forecasts for cold, windy weather on Saturday, March 11.
Charles Petruccelli, past president of Nutmeg Trout Unlimited Chapter 217 and a certified casting instructor, will offers lessons in casts and tactics that can be used on smaller streams around Fairfield County and beyond.
Petruccelli demonstrated how to tie small, hackle-less flies that can attract the trout early in the spring at the most recent Nutmeg TU meeting.

On the March 9 episode of Yankee Fisherman Petruccelli showed how to tie a blue winged olive, a tie he says you “don’t leave home without.”Tags: blue winged olive, caddis, Charles Petruccelli, hackleless flies, Lake Mohegan, small stream fishing, tips
