Fairfield, CT – Saturday, April 16 marked the official start of the fishing season. At the shorefront, gusty winds and chilly temperatures kept even the hardiest fishermen away throughout the early morning hours. But along the Mill River by the Mill River Bridge, several people turned up with their spincasters, fly rods and a range of lures and bait to try their luck in the choppy water.
