The Mianus Chapter's New Year's Day fishing trip is a fun tradition and a great way to break the cabin fever of winter and start 2019 off on the right foot!
Join us on Tuesday, January 1 at 10 a.m. at Mianus River Park in Stamford to spend a morning fishing the Mianus River with friends and fellow members. We'll have hot coffee and doughnuts ready and waiting - and it's sure to be a fun, festive gathering.
The river can fish surprisingly well in the winter, so you'll hopefully find some hungry trout in many of the deeper pools anxious to hit a big streamer or bright, bushy nymph pattern. Whether you are a beginner or expert angler, this chapter trip is a great way to learn how to fish our local streams in winter.
Mianus Chapter fishing trips are open to the public and members are encouraged to bring friends, family and new anglers. The chapter has rods, reels and other equipment to lend if you or your guests need to borrow them.
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.
MIANUS CHAPTER GEAR Fish the local rivers in style and proclaim your support for local river restoration with new Mianus Chapter gear.
Fishing caps available in Navy, Green, Khaki, Black and Red feature the chapter logo on the front and the words "Coldwater Conservation" on the back. Light-weight fishing shirts, available in White, Light Blue and Green, are perfect for a day on the stream.
