Yankee Fisherman, Thursday, May 19, 2016

Michael Caruso, publisher and owner of The Fisherman, talks about the magazine’s evolution from a newsletter started in 1966 to the 136-page 50th anniversary issued published in May.


Saturday, May 21, is World Fish Migration Day, and Laura Wildman of Princeton Hydro preps us for the Connecticut River Flotilla in Old Lyme. A family-friendly group paddling event that will draw attention to World Fish Migration Day while exploring the estuary of the Connecticut River, the tour will start at Smith Neck Road Boat Launch (1.8 miles south of I-95 exit 70 on Rt. 156) at 9 a.m. The group will include restoration specialists such as engineers and DEEP biologists. This is sponsored by Princeton Hydro, the Connecticut River Watershed Council, and other conservation groups. If you wish to attend, email Laura Wildman at lwildman@princetonhydro.com with the title WFMD Flotilla to let her know how many people in your party will be attending.
