Fishing the Mill River

Join us Saturday July 18th 8 AM

The Mill River is one of the crown jewels of Lower Fairfield County. Running through the towns of Easton and Fairfield, it is home to a thriving population of native brook trout and wild brown trout. More importantly for anglers, the Mill River is a tailwater stream with consistent releases from a large drinking water reservoir. This means that throughout the year, the waters remain cold, clear and fishable year round.

Screen Shot 2015-02-15 at 2.10.35 PMJoin Jeff Yates, author, guide and Trout Unlimited staff member for a 1/2 day outing on this great small trout stream. We will meet at 8 am at the commuter lot off of Exit 44 in Fairfield and carpool to the river. Jeff will lead a brief walking demonstration of where and how to fish the Mill River, following which anglers will be broken into small groups to fish various sections of the river on their own.

The Mill River is a small stream, a 7ft 4wt rod or small is recommended.

Please RSVP to Kit Nielsen. Looking forward to seeing you there.
