    Fly fishing the Croton watershed presentation

    I've noticed over the years that many of you post about the Croton watershed and many often have questions. I get the CTTU's Mianus chapter newsletter and see that next Tuesday (12th) they have a presenter talking about trout fishing in this watershed. Doors open at 7pm at the Waveny Mansion in New Canaan, Connecticut.

    not the prettiest streams ,but there are some pretty nice sized fish, and some wild fish as well over there. I've had a nice time fishing them early spring over the past 2 years being they are only 20 minutes away from school.

    Seems I've noticed newbies to the site having moved into the city or nearby for new jobs and asking about trout waters nearby and this system comes up a lot. One of the gang from this chapter is a buddy, so I thought I'd pass it along for anyone interested.

    i was there this weekend, and did not catch anything at all, did not even see any activity... maybe i was a the wrong place. i hiked along the river from a dog walking area, about 1/2 mile down stream, and no luck what so ever...

    Rusty- Thank you for the origional post.... From what I understand Croton TU and the Mianus Chapter traded secrets on both "systems" (Jeff went to the Croton TU meeting to talk about the Fairfield streams and I think Bob went to the Mianus system to talk about the Crotons). The mianus guys I talked to enjoyed the Croton presentation.... If there are newbies who in the future want to learn about these systems, they should attend one of the usually yearly talks or contact Croton TU and buy the river guide......

    Zarkhd - Where exactly did you fish? I am unaware of the "dog walking area", just curious for my own edification..... I fished the EB this Sunday, after 2pm. I fished some of the riffles by the bridge, and went to Phoebe's hole. The temp was barely 38, and dropped while I was there. There was no surface acctivity, as would be expected, and I had a similar experience to what you did Zark. I did see a handful of early stone files skittering around, but again NO activity. I had no fish in hand, and had only 1 take (which I am actually going to say was a "log" and not a fish) Don't get discouraged, it was not a particularly good day of fishing as far as I could tell, but MAN was it good to dust off the waders and get the line wet. Don't discouraged, things should heat up in about a month or so.
