Chapter Update October, 2020

Our first Virtual Chapter Meeting was held on September 17.  It was a successful test and gives us confidence that we can move ahead with Virtual Meetings for the time being.  For the October meeting we will have a presentation by Steve Culton (Rich Strolis has been moved to December).  Steve's presentation is on the "Little Things" that many of us overlook but can have a big impact on fishing success.   This will be an interesting program, and has the added benefit that you can have a beer while watching.  We are also organizing a raffle, so tune in and see if you can win something.

Connetquot Trip Friday, September 25

Hi everyone,


We had perfect weather and fishing conditions for our TU fishing trip to the Connetquot River on Friday, September 25th.   This outing was pure fun- Almost every spot was a place to catch beautiful trout- Rainbows, Brookies and Browns.   Here are a few comments  from some of our TU members who fished that day.


Lloyd –“I had a great time on the trip.  It is a really great spot.  If you use a wooly bugger you are almost guaranteed to catch fish!”


Greg-“I had a great day on the Connetquot, landing 90 trout!  Started with nymphs (size 16 Tungsten Jig Pheasant Tail) for my first 25, then switched to streamers (size 10 Olive Wooly Bugger and size 10 Golden Retriever) and got 65 more!  Overall, lots of really nice Brookies, and some nice Bows too.” 


Attached are some photos from the catches that day.  We all had so much fun that we are planning another CWCTU trip(or trips) to the Connetquot River on November 13th Friday-All day. If that day’s 13 slots gets filled, we can add another day in November like November 30th -Monday-All day when the NYS Park is closed.  TU members can invite family members to join you to fish this upcoming trip(s) to the Connetquot River.


Also, next year we will plan to schedule three trips to the Connetquot River- Spring, Summer and Fall.


Please contact me by email for any comments / suggestions for future TU trips next year and beyond.


Wishing tight lines for all of us,
