My river reports have been more like a weather forecast this year and there really isn’t much reason to change that today.  I received close to 2 inches of rain over the weekend and the whole state of Vermont received similar amounts and in some cases much more.  This has left big rivers high and dirty again!  Depending on a quick moving front tonight, big rivers won’t be fishable until Thursday.  The next 10 days look good with cool and dry weather forecasted for most of the period. Small and mid sized streams are high but clear and fishing well. A good idea during high water is to fish the lower sections of mid sized trib’s.  Savvy trout will travel up into these waters to get out of the heavy flow of the main stream in search of a more friendly environment.  I will be teaching a “Learn to Fly Fish” course the next two days in Middlebury. I love teaching this course when the big rivers are blown out..
