Save The Fish - Minimize Time Out Of Water

It is important to properly handle fish you plan to release. This is particularly important as water and air temperatures rise to near lethal levels. You can tilt the odds of survival to the fish by minimizing the time the fish spends out of the water. Things you can do:

  • Don't take the fish out of the water - keep it in your net, let it calm down before removing the (barbless) hook.
  • If you want a picture take it in the net for a new perspective.
  • If you want a grip and grin, get the camera ready, lift, snap, return.
  • Guide the fish to deep water.

One Fly - Bamboo Rod Event

The annual LTC "One Fly" Bamboo Rod contest will be held on Sat June 1st.  See our Calendar page.  All fish must be landed using a bamboo rod and your selection of One Fly.  Sign ups start at 9 a.m. and the fishing will be 10-12(noon).  

Member Bob Walsh will have a limited number of rods available for members and guests who might not have their own bamboo rod.

The cost is $15 for all participants.  Please consider volunteering for this event.  Contact member Jim Oravetz for more info.

    Celebrating Our 62nd Year

    Limestone Trout Club offers fly-fishing in a scenic 94-acre parcel located in the Town of North Canaan, Connecticut. It is a private, members only club - not open to the general public.

    Within the reclaimed Limestone quarries is a well-groomed property suited for the needs of fly fishers’ varied abilities. Stillwater fishing is plenty challenging! 

    The club features six unique ponds, beautiful landscape, camaraderie of its membership, and full time, on-site management. Non-fishing family and invited visitors will find a comfortable clubhouse where you read a book or take a walk outside on trails that circumvent the ponds.

    For more information about joining, see our Membership page and check out the This is Limestone page.

    Sorry, but the ponds are not for swimming.  Pet friendly, but please refrain from allowing pets in the ponds.
