Fishing Outlook & Conditions
Orvis Avon's Tip of the Week
While dry fly fishing has been great lately, plenty of other methods are catching fish. Nymphing has been producing plenty of fish when nothing is rising on top. Streamers have also been a great way to catch fish especially after heavy rainfall when there is some stain in the water. Swinging a variety of different wet flies is also fun and productive particularly before/during the start of a hatch.

5-Day Outlook as of 6/9/21
As of today (6/9), the USGS gauges read 355cfs from Goodwin dam in West Hartland and 148cfs from the Still River making for a TMA flow of 503cfs. Look for flows to gradually decrease as the week goes on due to little rain being shown in the 5-day forecast.
Techniques & Tips as of 6/9/21
Sulphurs are the most prevalent hatch currently as they can be found all the way throughout the TMA. June is arguably ther best month for dry flies so look for bugs hatching throughout the day depending on conditions. The hotter the air temperature, generally the later the bugs will start hatching in the evening. In addition to sulphers, look for caddis, march browns, and olives to also be hatching on the river.
