Join the Mianus Chapter on Opening Day of Trout Season for a fun, free, streamside breakfast of pancakes, eggs, bacon, toast, coffee and juice at Merwin Meadows Park in Wilton.
Opening Day is always an exciting time for anglers - beginners through experienced - and is a great way to engage your family in a fun, new tradition! The river will be freshly stocked with hungry trout and we've got volunteers cooking up a storm to satisfy your hunger too!
We'll fire up the grills and griddles and be dishing out hot, tasty meals from 9 to 11 a.m. Feel free to come early and fish, then stop by for a bite, or join us for breakfast and then head to the Norwalk River that flows through the park for some fishing. Younger kids who've had their fill of fishing and pancakes will eagerly race to the playground at the park, or explore the beach, pond or wood-lined stream for a day of adventures!
The event and meal is free and open to all - members and non-members alike. Donations to the chapter to support our conservation and youth education projects and programs are appreciated.
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.
