AFTU CONNETQUOT RIVER STATE PARK FISHING DATES
 
***Change in Monthly Club Fishing Day...***

The park informed us they are changing the day we will be allowed to fish as a club. They decided to move our fishing day to the FOURTH MONDAY of the month starting January.  For January it will be Monday Jan. 28 2019.  For the months of January, February and March there will be only one session and it is 11am to 3pm.  Hopefully this does not interfere with anyone who might wish to fish.
