We spent an incredible day on the Housatonic River with Bert Ouellette of Housatonic River Outfitters in Cornwall Bridge, CT. We’ve been blessed with great guides on our adventure and Bert was no exception. He put us on some amazing fish (see pics embedded in video), knew the river incredibly well pointing out all the named holes, gave us some good spots to go back and wade fish and kept us high and dry in his “Fear No Rocks” Clakacraft drift boat. He knew the history of the area and was able to point out various artifacts along the way including a gorgeous covered bridge. We had an outstanding lunch on the river that kept us going all day and it was a full day of fishing…. and catching!
This is a gorgeous river that reminded us of many of the western streams we’d fished before. Rather than me trying to describe the river and how its fished, take a listen to Bert’s interview. We learned so much from him as I know you will. Enjoy!
