With the change of the season comes changes in the fishing conditions.  Over the past week , every day was different than the day before weather wise.  Frosty mornings as well has balmy, sunny and cloudy, windy, rainy. Last weekend the Green Mountain Troutfitters had a large group of fly fishers visit Vermont for 2 days of fishing.  We were fortunate enough to be able to help out on the 2nd day and took 4 of their guests to fish the Otter.  The first day, the day before a cold front hit, the fishing was pretty. The group fished the Lamoille with the Troutfitters and did well with some rainbows.  The next day, the front hit and made a river that had been on fire the previous week, difficult.  We had to work for every fish, and it hasn’t been easy ever since.  We finally got a decent amount of rain around the state on Wednesday. Most of the state received about an inch, which made the Lamoille river come up and got a little cloudy yesterday, but it remained fishable and will be in great shape this weekend.  Iso’s, BWO’s and Caddis of many colors have been the hatches.  For the rest of the year white streamer’s with pearl and pink flash are a good choice.
