11/22/14- Excellent Seasonal Levels- - OPENINGS THIS WEEK- Excellent temps for fishing in the coming several days. Chance of some good rain Sunday. Last trip out was excellent despite air temps in the 42 range.ayfly mymph imitations in the #16-20 range brought many brightly colored Fall Rainbows to the net. You have to fish a little slower now but in many ways it's more gratifying as you work harder for the trout. November is a great time to catch the really big trout. Trout are adjusting to the colder water and some have moved down in the water column a bit. A shot or 2 can make a difference. We fish year round.
An Outstanding 7 Pounder Taken -11/1/14
Looking Ahead- Nov- This month can actually be one of the better months for fishing believe it or not. We normally have 14- 24 days which sees highs in the mid upper 30's-40s to mid 60's or so and trout are still active even on top. Water flows are usually pretty good to excellent this month. Barring a killing frost early in the month terrestrial patterns and other dries still will produce, The last 2 weeks normally see a big time change to nymph fishing especially if the days & nights cool down. Just be a little more patient as the takes might not be as hard as the month transitions to to cold. Lined pants, heavier windbreaker, wader bibs or long johns are advisable along with a few layers and most importantly a good insulated cap or hat and gloves along with ear covers. . Native brookies spawn in Oct-Nov so we give them a break. Our Intro Trip for beginners is the best in the state. Please do not hesitate to send me any questions. November always has some great fishing days.
