Name: Aspetuck River
County:
Acreage: -
Share:
Species: Brown Trout
Location Details: The name "Aspetuck" comes from the Aspetuck River, which runs close to where I grew up in Easton, Connecticut. I wrote "Aspetuck Waters" in support of the movement in Easton to protect the Trout Brook Valley, also nearby, which ecologically is a key link in the largest remaining unbroken forest in southern Connecticut. Trout Brook Valley (which is close to the Saugatuck Reservoir) was owned for many years by the Bridgeport Hydraulic Company, which had always used its land as a buffer zone to create a natural filtration system for the Saugatuck Reservoir. Although privately owned, the forest was intact and untouched. (Southern Connecticut geography lesson: the Aspetuck River flows out of the Easton Reservoir, which is fed by the Saugatuck Reservoir.) East Aspetuck River Fishing. Species: Wild Brown Trout: 9? min. length. Wild Trout Management Area (Class 3) from Lake Waramaug to confluence with the Housatonic River. Intermittent sections are accessible from Rt. 202 to Wells Rd.
