Androscoggin River

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

A dry dropper rig with a high floating caddis coupled with a heavy caddis nymph can be deadly, especially when swung at the end of a dead drift. Also using a golden stonefly to trigger a surface strike is also effective. Alders should be popping on the upper river soon so be prepared to focus in on the banks where these flies will fall out of the alders.

Seven-day forecast 

After a night around 40 degrees temps will rebound into the 70's today with warmer temps scheduled for Sunday and Monday. Water temps should hold on through this heat wave and the warmer temps should spur some Alderfly and Stonefly hatches. Temps look to moderate later next week.
