A day fishing with a friend on the Farmington River in CT.

Nice read! I heard of that river being great but haven't looked into what town(s) to try since it appears to span many. I fished the Pomperaug a few times though (in Woodbury). Caught a few 16" rainbows and browns, but definitely see others much bigger.

It's a good river. Tailwater that runs through a few towns, literally in people's backyards and a nice alternative to the Catskills in summer. Heading back in two weeks and will fish the nights only.

I don’t fly fish, but shoot me a PM. Maybe we can meet up

Sure, but I do think that most of the river is FF only. Going with NYC TU guys.

I very much like the Farmington. I look at it like the West Branch Delaware “light”. As in it’s a combo of wild and stocked fish. I wish it were closer for me so I could fish it more. Being that it’s largely a tailwater, you can fish it all summer when my local larger rivers are too warm for C&R fly fishing.

There are two good days when you go fishing.  Days you catch fish and days you don't!

Can't argue with that.

Me too. So much fishable water. But the best part is the mousing.
