I had intended to check out that tributary yesterday, but the fishing on the Housatanic was good! Also, I brought out the wife and had set her up in a winter hammock cocoon, so I didn't want to move. The water was really high still, but we managed to get down into the slow zone and got into a few fish. I'm really impressed with the catch rate on the Housatanic river. But I don't know if I can just attribute it to the river, or if my skills improved from a straight 6 days of euronymphing on the Madison in later october or if my new rod is a lot more sensitive and I'm detecting more subtle strikes.If the Hous is too high for your liking try Furnace Brook along Route 4 just up the street from HRO.
