Androscoggin River

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Deep nymphing has been the key to success when the sun is up. A large Stonefly with a San Juan worm and or a smaller mayfly nymph has been working well. Dragon flies are also being taken off the surface. A black or peacock chernobyl ant works well to imitate these bugs. When the fish do rise a big foam stonefly, assorted caddis, or a parachute adams have all seen takes. A Zoo Cougar or bugger stripped through seams and drop offs has also been effective.

Seven-day forecast 

The weather pattern seems to be cyclical right now...like last week thunderstorms are possible tomorrow (Friday). From here temps will hover around the low 80's for the next week. Keys to success will be to get out early and hope the rain cools water temps a bit.
