Farmington River

Tip of the week 

Early in the morning, emerging caddis are still providing exciting activity. Drift a caddis emerger downstream and allow the fly to swing up in the current . Water temps have stabilized to the mis 60's and the trout are very active and apt to chase streamers as well. Evenings are really good with the caddis retuning, and using a low water caddis fly as well as skating a hackled caddis pattern across the surface will be effective.

Seven-day forecast 

The outlook is very good with warmer temps this week and next. Sulpher activity will get stronger, so plan your trips with an evening hatch in mind.
