Farmington River

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Dry Fly fishing has been very productive throughout the river, Look for fish to begin rising in the early afternoon on a variety of different insects. Keep a keen eye out for small Caddis, Lt cahills ISO's and small BWO's throughout the river. Streamers will also move fish when fished slow and deep or along seams between fast moving water and slack. Nymphing has continued to be a very productive fishing method with some excellent wild and holdover fish coming out of all parts of the river. Suspension nymphing (indicator) techniques and tight line (Euro) style nymphing have proved to be extremely productive when no rising fish can be located.

Seven-day forecast 

With day time forecasted temperatures in the low 90's and night temps in in the 60's water temperatures should remain in the mid to high 50's. Flows continue to be at the mid to high 200 CFS in the TMA allowing wade fishing almost everwhere in the river. With any luck we will see some much needed rain in the near future. Overall the dryfly and nymph fishing this week should be challanging but very successful.
