Tiny Baetis mayflies are perhaps the most commonly encountered and imitated by anglers on all American trout streams due to their great abundance, widespread distribution, and trout-friendly emergence habits.

Anybody familiar with Farmington/Housatonic rivers? Can I get in the water this time of year or is it all ice? My wife is taking our 4 yr old skiing in Plantsville and I would love to sneak out unless it is a complete waste of time.

I don't know the area at all, however, I did come across a local guide and instructor from Orvis, VT who fishes both regularly. Unfortunately, I don't recall his name. You could contact Truell Myers at Orvis to inquire.
