The Naugatuck River “Campville Section” is a hidden gem for those looking to get away from the crowds of the most popular fishing locations. The “Campville” section of the river begins at the Route 118 crossing in Harwinton and extends approximately 2.5 miles downstream into the Army Corps of Engineer’s Thomaston Dam area. Continuous access is best upstream of Campville Road with a well established dirt path on either bank. The best way to fish this section is to walk 5-10 minutes upstream on the road and then fish your way back down. The length of river has a series of deep pools, lengthy runs, and swift flowing riffles. A great way to spend an afternoon. To get to the Campville Bridge – take exit 41 off of Route 8. Head downhill from the exit ramp. The bridge over the river is about 3/4 of a mile from the exit ramp.
