The first ever Norwalk River 'One Fly' & Kids Fishing Tournament is a fun, family-friendly way to get anglers out enjoying the great spring fishing on the Norwalk River and supporting the important conservation work of the Mianus Chapter. Sign up to compete in the 'One Fly' event, or register your kids and entire family for the other tournament!
This is an entirely catch-and-release tournament with a goal of increasing angler appreciation and support for the conservation of the Norwalk River. All anglers are expected to participate based on the honor system when measuring and logging their catches.
The event runs from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. and is followed by a BBQ celebration and awards ceremony in Wilton. You do not need to arrive at 6 a.m. to participate, but you do have to check-in and receive your official tournament tape measure before beginning to fish!
We will have a 'One Fly' tournament open to all participants - official rules and details will be provided separately - where all anglers entered must choose one fly pattern to use for the entire day (multiple versions of that same pattern may be used if the original fly is lost.) Click for full tournament rules.
We will also have a Kids Fishing Division open to all youth age 16 and under and an Adult All Tackle Division for ages 17 and up where all artificial tackle (no bait) can be used on either fly or spin equipment. All lures must have a single hook - no treble hooks.
All anglers must report back by 6 p.m. with photographic evidence and their catch log completed in order to be eligible for the tournament.
Full tournament details and rules will be provided to all registered anglers.
