Celebrate the season with a bit of humor, time on the water with friends new and old and, of course, an ugly sweater! Join the Mianus Chapter, and our fellow TU chapters from across the state, for a day you won’t soon forget – whether the trout are willing or not.
We will meet at 10 a.m. at UpCountry Sportfishing in New Hartford and spread out along the river to go fishing in small groups. At 3 p.m., catch up with the crowd at Chatterley’s Restaurant downtown for some drinks, a bite to eat and the warmth of a comfy venue and fellow anglers! Drinks and food are on your own.
Fishing can be surprisingly good on the Farmington in mid-December, with midge hatches and blue wing olives sometimes bringing trout to the surface. More than likely you’ll be tossing nymphs and stripping streamers through the pools to get a bite.
Don’t have an ugly sweater? No problem – the only important thing is that you come join the fun and take some time out of the busy holidays to relax on a beautiful river with fellow TU members.
Chapter fishing trips are free and open to the public, so be sure to invite your friends and fishing buddies. Beginners and new anglers are always welcome and this is a great trip to learn the Farmington from more experienced anglers willing to show you the ropes. We can lend gear to those of you without the proper rod outfits for larger rivers.
