Camp with Nutmeg on the Housy

Ron Merly shows the size of the fish that can be caught on the annual Nutmeg TU camping trip along the Housatonic.

The Nutmeg Chapter will host its 8th annual Housatonic River Fly fishing and Camping weekend on May 30-June 1 at Housatonic Meadows State Park in Sharon.

Members are invited to come for the weekend, a day, or just to fish the evening hatch and enjoy the beauty of the river and its surroundings.   Typically there are all sorts of bugs hatching at this time and several members have caught large trout at past events.

If you wish to camp, please go to either the Houastonic Meadows website or to ReserveAmerica to reserve a campsite.  Camping fees are $17.00 per night and a $9.00 reservation charge.  We have already reserved Site #43 for the weekend so if you want to be near other Nutmeg TUers, please reserve a nearby site.
