Join expert anglers from the Mianus Chapter for a free, fun, Family Fishing Clinic & Kids Trout Stocking this Saturday, May 12 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Merwin Meadows Park in Wilton.
Perfect for anglers of all ages and skill levels, there will also be a special Youth Fishing section with both fly rods and spinning rods will help children under 16 learn to fish at their own pace.
The state's stocking truck will be arriving at around 9:30 a.m. with trout for kids to stock in the river, so bring your kids of all ages for a fun treat - and bring a 5-gallon bucket if you have it! (And yes, everyone can go fishing for the trout after they've had an hour or two to acclimate to the river!)
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.
