Farmington River

Tip of the week 

High stick nymphing is still effective however, things are changing. More and more early stoneflies are present for some early dry fly activity. The farmington has been stocked with trout that are eager to chase streamers now. Takes on nymphs will still be subtle but the waters are warminng so the fishes behavior will be changing in accordance. Be ready.

Seven-day forecast 

Warmer temperatures have cleared the river of ice. Wading is now much easier, however, snow is still lining the shores making access in some areas a little difficult, but that is also improving. The forecast is calling for warmer temperatures which will cause water levels to rise. Dress in warm layers. We have plenty of fleece, icebreaker underlayering, gloves etc. are available in our Avon store. Come in and see our selection of warm weather gear and our arriving spring selections. The hatches will be coming. We offer free fly fishing and tying classes so you can be prepared ,plus a nice selection of gear and apparel.We love to talk fishing so, come on in and chat.
