I'm starting to get into fly fishing now that the season is over and I was wondering if anyone around here has had any luck in the winter. I know it is a very slow time to catch trout as they are so lethargic but I figure I'll only be bettering myself for the spring if I can get out there and try to catch fish now.

I've never fly fished in the winter, but have gone using lures in a few rivers and done decent. I think last year I went twice in January and got 6 one day and 3 another. Had to fish much slower and be patient, but it was fun.

Once waterfowl season ends I start fly fishing for trout and fish only until opening day. I don't fish with the idiots that come out in herds on opening day! Obviously there's no top water action so nymphing is your best bet. There's very few places in CT where you will actually have room to cast so unless your doing salt water no double hauling, so Practice your roll cast. The rivers should be fairly calm seeing as there is no melting snow making them rise so seeing a strike should be pretty easy but it doesn't hurt to have a strike indicator on your line. Any questions just ask.
