Nutmeg TU recently hosted one of its fishing trips, held almost monthly, this time on the Saugatuck River in Westport.
David Ader and John Kovach of Nutmeg led the trip, and father and son due of Joe and Ryan Welsh of Shelton both had success in the fly-only area along Ford Road.
The state has begun stocking trout in advance of the opening of the 2018 season, and stocked the fly-only section of the Saugatuck Trout Management Area Thursday, March 15.
The state offers updates on stocking via the Connecticut Fish & Wildlife Facebook page.
Remember that anglers who keep trout, or who fish in special regulations areas such as Trout Management Areas or Trophy Trout Parks, must purchase a Trout & Salmon Stamp for $5. Click here to read more about the stamp.
