Out of the soup and into the fire. After dealing with high dirty water for most of the summer we are now faced with high and hot water.  Summer has finally arrived with abundant sunshine and and air temps nearing 90.  This has pushed water temps on the big river over 70 by noon.  This trend doesn’t look to change until the middle of next week.  It’s a good thing Vermont offers such a diverse water system. While the early morning fishing on these rivers has been good,  the small stream brook trout fishing has been great as well as the bass fishing. This is also when fishing for non game Lake Champlain species is at it’s best. Long nosed Gar, carp and sheepshead have been getting into there summer patterns and some nice fish have been caught during the hottest part of the day.
