Trout Unlimited met in Stamford to talk cleans waters, good people and good beer along the Mill River. Conservation is good conversation. This week, learn what they teach, share and fight for and how you can be part of 300,000 people who support cold, clean water. With 420 local chapters contributing 730,000 volunteer hours, you just might find a place to help and fish with those good people.
April calls river herring, northern pike and volunteers to shallow waters. Gather by a herring run to see the miracle of migration then pack lots of shiny spoons for big Spring pike action as they head in to spawn and attack anything approaching their young. Oh there’s lots of action this month in skinny waters.
Rivers mean everything to us so this week, we celebrate Spring’s rivers and riders. There’s a Trout Unlimited banquet, a new kayak lift on the Saugatucket River and sadly, we say goodbye to one of the best, Matt Wunsch. Matt was a fisherman, writer, family man, friend and all around good shit.
This month, we all lean a little west, looking for dark grey fins, small swirls, or flocks of black-tipped gulls tipping us off to striped bass movements east and north. Locals have their favorite spots so why not use their favorite lures? This month, go local for spring stripers with advice from the best local sources.
It’s Time To Ban Nips. End of sentence. Nips are those small, shiny booze bottles that are all the rage now and they keep ending up on the side of the road and in fish’s streams. They are unrecyclable, they are unnecessary and they need to go. Drop the nip.
