    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.
