This weeks outlook is good, however some thunder storms passed through the north late Sunday. The rain was spotty and most rivers remain inside their banks. The Pigeon and Sturgeon are slightly colored but fishable. The Black and Maple are are a little darker colored and well within their banks and fishable.
Summer Rules; brightness and water temperatures are the key. Avoid water temps above 68 F and mid day brightness. As the days and nights heat up the best times to fish change. With hot days and warm night we move to early morning or late afternoon / early evening to fly fish. Taking the water temperature at the time you want to fish will let you know what to expect. Each trout has it's own feeding behavior and quit biting at approximately; 68 F...Brook, 70 F...Brown, 72 F...Rainbow. Plan the right time to fish and you wont be disappointed. And check the water temperature.
The big Hexagenia Limbata is getting ready, so watch for it on your river of choice. It is your best chance to land that big Brown trout . Be sure to clip that leader down to 0X -1X and tie on that 6-8 size fly. Watch for our report on "Catching the Big Brown" which we will post on our Facebook page and web site.
