Androscoggin River

Tip of the week 

Fish the top water in the early morning with a Blue Wing Olive or Hendrikson size 12 to 18, even a hopper off a deep shaded bank. Start with the 12 then work your way down. Try bouncing it off a rock and then let fall into current to mimic a falling insect, or under some overhanging trees, same when fishing the terrestrial patterns. If you can get it just on edge of bank and let fall into water, fish are keying in on that type of movement.

Once the sun is up the fish are moving to deeper water. Beadhead leech patterns are doing well with sink line to get deep fast or caddis/mayfly larvae with weight when nymphing.

Seven-day forecast 

Cooler temps in the 60's with rain on Tues and Wed and again on Saturday.
