Connetquot River State Park

Photos by Alida Thorpe
Fly fishing on the Connetquot River, early morning....
My husband and I went fishing in the river before sunrise and watched the sun come up over the trees.
A mist was hovering over the water and the only sounds heard were those of the fish splashing and birds chirping.
It was serene and beautiful. It was an amazing morning!
Have you been in the Connetquot River State Park?
The fly-fishing season will end as of October 1st, but you can still enter the park for hiking and photo-taking. There is a parking fee and a permit is needed for fishing.
It is one of the secret places that many Long Islanders have yet to discover.

Enjoy what Long Island has to offer!
