Androscoggin River

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Focus on the biggest pools. On warmer days fish can be caught in the last bit of fast water before the river slows. When in doubt move downstream to slower flowing water. Nymphing is always a good bet with buggers or stoneflies coupled with a pink worm or egg pattern being a good choice. Fish streamers on a full sink or sink tip line depending on depth. I like a kreelix or other flashy patterns to fish the slower waters. Right now trout eggs are hatching and sac fry patterns should work well.

Seven-day forecast 

The weather over the next seven days will vary greatly. On Thursday February 11th we will see temps in the 20's from there daytime highs will drop through Sunday when the high may not break double digits. On Monday temps begin to moderate a bit with a potential snowstorm arriving Monday night. Temps will rise into the mid to high 30's on Tuesday and Wednesday.
