I have been spending most of my free time a field hunting turkey and I’ve only produced a 14lbs. jake. Any other time is spent trying to get my girls more interested in either hunting or fishing. We have been having our way with the freshly stocked fish in the Browns and Lamoille in the trophy section, but it’s never a willing endeavor.  On the other hand our clients have been treated to awesome fishing due to awesome fishing conditions.  Rivers are running lower than normal with great clarity and water temps between 45 and 55 depending. Hatches of Hendrickson have been coming off like clock work and have been taking dries below Fairfax Dam.  2pm is when they have been starting with fish rising from 2:45 until it shuts off at 4pm.

Early Quill Emerger’s and Hare’s Ears before, during and after the Hatch, Catskill Hendrickson’s when fish begin to rise have had modest productivity.  Look for conditions to continue to be great as we can expect more seasonal temps, and on again off again showers through Sunday though out the state.  Thursdays rain event could effect clarity in some locations. Everything else should just help our flows down the road.
