This is an entirely new event! We’ll begin our day at a leisurely 11 am on Saturday, June 30, at Audubon Sharon, 325 Cornwall Bridge Road, Sharon, CT 06069 for a curated hour long lecture about the birds in and around the rivers we fish. the lecturer is a local fly fisher and bird expert. After the lecture we’ll dine stream side along the Housatonic River and then meet our guide for an afternoon of fishing. We’re going to have a brown bag lunch, so you can either bring your meal from home or pick something up along the way at a local deli. We’ll fish until dusk and then head out. Some will opt to stop for dinner at a local restaurant, while others will head home. Either way you’ll still have Sunday to relax before beginning the work week.
We’re heading up to the North Country for two full days of guided fly fishing in the Adirondack Mountains outside Lake Placid! We’ll arrive at our lodging Thursday night (5 hours north of NYC) so that we get full days of fishing Friday and Saturday. Each group of three anglers will have it’s own guide from The Ausable Two Fly Shop as we head out in the morning each day to which ever river is fishing best. The Ausable, Saranac, Boquet, and Black Rivers are all possibilities. Trout and Bass are the target fish. We will be sleeping in bunk rooms at a private lodge nestled in the mountains with spectacular views, s’mores around the campfire and the use of a private bass camp at a nearby lake. There will be no other guests, although there may be a few dogs! Days will be warm and nights will be a bit chilly as we sit around the campfire gazing at the amazing stars in the northern skies! Don’t miss out on this chance to see a truly spectacular part of New York State and enjoy the finest fly fishing east of the Rockies!
Fishing at the Connetquot is like seeing an old friend for the Julianas, we’ve been there many times. We keep returning because the park is spectacular, and the fishing is great. The Connetquot River is a hidden jewel running through an old hunting club converted to a park about 90 minutes outside of NYC. Wading is easy and the trout are plentiful. We will have the entire river to ourselves for a private day of angling. Bring your own lunch, we’ll have a cooler with water, soft drinks and some chips. As you head to your beats, take a moment to park your butt on the bench we donated to the park years ago.
