Andy Idema (aidema) wrote a description for the Rippowam River, Connecticut
The Rippowam River originates from the North Stamford Reservoir in Stamford, CT. It runs down along behind the beginning of High Ridge rd. down through to Wire Mill rd. after going under a bridge near the Merrit Parkway exit ramp exit 35. It follows down behind Wire Mill and runs through Studio rd. and Cedar Heights rd. and eventually hits Long Ridge rd. From there it goes down Long Ridge behind houses and between streets where its mostly priate property until it comes to the bridge on Cold Spring rd. After a hard bend on Cold Spring it runs through Scalzi Park and down Washington Boulevard, where some refer to it as the Mill River. It proceeds to run into Long Island sun. Stocked once a year the Rippowam is often overlooked with the heavily stocked Mianus less than miles away. Provides solid angling through the season and has stretches deep enough to hold fish year round, even though its unlikely it does happen. The Ripp takes a beating on opening day from worm fisherman and little kids, but afterwards rarely sees fisherman. I personally have caught natural born fish in the Ripp and have seen fish over 5 pounds. This past year I took 3 fish over 20 inches one of which was a natural brown. The Rippowam is what I'd call a small stream quite close to the size of the Mianus. It does receive a handful of breeders every year so keep an open mind in fishing the Ripp. An average trout would be around 12 inches but 14-16 inchers are not uncommon. As the year goes on the trout grow more and more wary, becoming skittish enough to bolt at the sight of fly line on the water. If you're a sharp angler with a good drift there are some beautiful fish to come out of this river. There have been fish over 7 pounds taken in the last 2 years. So if you're ever in Stamford and don't want to fish the Mianus because there's a hundred people there stop by the Ripp and you might find a hidden gem. (01/04/10)
