Rapid River

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Flows are low, and accesses is great. Nymphing the fast water for small salmon, with Brookies lying below, and often giving chase. Just watching huge brook trout swimming at the dam is fun. If you have never experienced this, see for yourself with a trip to the Rapid River.

Seven-day forecast 

Mid 80 degree air temperatures during the day have the river warming a lot in the high sun. However, the water flow has stayed consistent, and fish are still moving around, especially the smaller salmon and even a few small brook trout. The bass are numerous in great numbers in the slow water near pond in the river. This can make for great father son trips, with guaranteed fishing excitement.
