Saco River

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

We have transitioned from terrestrial to tiny midges as of late. Flies down to a size 32 are now the ticket. Try a fast strip retrieve if a dead drift doesn't do the trick. Or you can always throw nymph rigs. With a warm front arriving this weekend we could see another and swarm but be prepared for smaller bugs if that doesn't happen. Streamer bite has turned on despite low flows. Throw bright and mid-sized stuff 2-3". Bigger stuff will move fewer but bigger fish.

Seven-day forecast 

Cool over the next few days then warmer Sunday, near 80 degrees. Cooler weather and some showers next week highs 60-75 degrees.. Perfect fishing weather...get out there!
