Upper Connecticut River - Bloomfield VT upstream to above Lake Francis

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

I like the dead drift. Nymphing, double nymph rigs. Stripping streamers with an emerger trailer.

Seven-day forecast 

The rivers and lakes are holding steady due to occasional rain. The water temps have come up and clarity is good. There are some bugs moving and some fish rising. # hitting dries
The Pike are good. The foreoast calls for occasional rain. I don't think anything serious. A little rain a few times a week would actually be perfect.
