Jus’ Fishin’

by Brian Zinger on September 29, 2012

Every day can be different when setting out to fish in the Fall. This past week the weather was different everyday, which lead to different strategies or tactics. I also ran into different water conditions all over the Winooski due to water release from the Waterbury Res. or a down pour somewhere up stream of Waterbury making for a change of venue. The only decent hatch I observed was BWO’s. They where in the air everywhere on Wednesday under overcast skies, in a size #22. I only saw a hand full of rises an we couldn’t get a bump on any imitation of the hatch. Nymph imitations of Isonycia have been the go to, and there are a ton of naturals on the river bottom. Very few adults in the air. We have a stretch of unsettled weather this weekend and coming week, so we should continue with good BWO’s hatches. Hopefully the fish will get tuned in.
