Farmington River

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Nymphing is the most productive technique during the colder months ahead of us. Suspension nymphing (indicator) techniques will tend to be more efficient than tight line nymphing will be because the fish are moving into slower and deeper holds. During warmer days, streamers will also move fish when fished slow and deep. Fish can be found rising during morning hours on warmer and windless days during the winter.

Seven-day forecast 

Warmer weather will increase trout feeding activity and may also incrase morning winter caddis hatches in the early mornings. Nymphing and streamer fishing will be the contunue to be the best option for producing fish this week.
