Farmington River

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Early in the morning, emerging caddis can provide some exciting activity. Drift a caddis emerger downstream and allow the fly to swing up in the current . Water temps have cooled somewhat and the trout are vety active and very apt to chase streamers.

Seven-day forecast 

There is a slowing of surface activity now but that will change quickly as the evening starts to come alive with sulpher activity. Also, look for some mid afternoon dry fly activity with tan and green caddis. Make sure you have some March Brown flies and large searching dry flies. Stimulators will be increasingly effective.
