On The Water’s Angling Adventures Presents Float Fishing on the Farmington River
Float fishing with a centerpin is a popular tactic for steelhead and brown trout on the Great Lakes tributaries, but it’s also very effective on trout closer to home. Chris Megan and Jimmy Fee join guide Joe Diorio on a perfect late-winter day to try out this technique on the brown and rainbow trout of the Farmington River in Connecticut.
Special thanks to our guide Joe Diorio of JoeDiorioGuideService.com
Float Fishing on the Farmington River airs on NBC Sports Boston this Sunday at 10 AM and 10 PM. NBC Sports Boston is available nationwide on DirecTV.

Up until I was 8 years old, I lived in Bristol, CT., 1951 to 1959 I fished the Pequaboc River and occasionally the Farmington River. The old worm and bobber method. We moved away and 60 years later I am now retired and within a two hours drive time. I would love to revisit the Farmington River, but your video did not provide a walk in location, or lure , presentation and instruction. The knees are a bit gimpy but It looks doable. What do you say?
Bill, the full episode will detail all those things for you. Watch this Sunday at 10AM on NBC Sports Boston or check it out next week on youtube when we begin launching full episodes there.
In addition to this show, you can purchase a book that will give you all the pools and how to get to them. The book is, “A Guide to Fishing the Farmington”. It can be purchased from UpCountry Sport Fishing Fly Shop; their email is http://www.farmingtonriver.com. Another resource is a blog by Steve Coulton called http://www.currentseams.com. He gives a Farmington River report at least once week and flies to tie and use.
