I continue to be amazed by the number of people who have nothing better to do on a weekday than fly fish on the Farmington River. Of course, I’m not a part of the solution. But never mind. Just a wee excursion today from 11:30am-2pm, and not all of it was fishing. Hit two spots on the lower river in 90 minutes, which at 800cfs and change was a little high for my liking. (Didn’t get a water temp.) Spot A was a blank, and I wasn’t surprised given the water height. Spot B was a surprising blank, what with a few bugs (midges, grey stones, small un-IDed mayfly) coming off and the water beginning to warm. I spent the last hour exploring a new area, trying to assess its fishiness, and then buying some clear midge rib at UpCountry.
I shall endeavor to get out more and produce a more useful report.

Steve, thanks for the information. Tying flies is fun but fishing them is better.
This is true. And catching on them even more so.
Doesn’t anyone work anymore! Aughta pass a law!!
Scouting is a tough job but somebody has to do it! Thanks for stepping up to the plate Steve. 🙂
My pleasure. I think.
Trust me, I’m glad you’re doing it! At the moment all my fly fishing is by living vicariously through you!
