Early summer offers some of the best fishing on the Farmington River. The tailwater releases keep the water cool no matter how hot the weather and the major mayfly hatches - sulphur, cahill, blue wing olive - all start peaking right at this time of year.
Join us on Saturday, June 25th for our fourth annual picnic on the banks of the Farmington River. We will be co-hosting with the Candlewood Valley Chapter of Trout Unlimited.
This event is free to chapter members and guests but requires registration so we can get a solid headcount. Click here to register.
Along with Ben's family, we have established the Bennett Wood Stewardship Fund to to help fund future summer internships and river restoration projects. Donations may be made online or checks payable to the Mianus Chapter of Trout Unlimited with “The Bennett Wood Stewardship Fund” in the memo line may be mailed to: Mianus Trout Unlimited, P.O. Box 475, Wilton, CT 06897.

LOCAL RIVER RESTORATION PROJECTS Since 1973, the Mianus Chapter has been restoring local rivers and improving habitat for trout and other aquatic life.
In recent years, work has focused on the Norwalk River, where the chapter has protected a spawning wild brown trout population, and on the Mianus River, where work on our namesake stream continues to enhance the fishing and improve the river.
