Default Farmington or Beaverkill?

If you had to choose between only one, which would you choose?

Hoping to get to both this year but not sure, plus I know I won't be able to get a guide for both or maybe even either and having never fished them before should probably focus on just one.

4wt,

Do you live in CT....... I don't think there is a Beaverkill in CT......Beaver Brook, yes, in Barkhamsted......it's small.

The Farmington is very low now, because they are filling the reservoir which feeds it. Lots of trout right now concentrated in the big pools.

Have fun!

Joe

Thanks!

Yeah, I meant the Beaverkill. No, I don't live in CT. Both rivers are a looooong haul for me so I'll only be able to hit one once this year and will likely get a guide as it would be my first time on either river. They seem to be fairly legendary fisheries.
