Fishing Outlook & Conditions
Orvis Manchester's Tip of the Week
Nymph the deeper runs. Also, fish emergers(caddis, bwo, sulphur) just below the surface in the slower water. There have been some reports of fish rising early am on size 18-22 BWO and also a mix of sulphurs and caddis mid-day, with potential spinner falls in the evening. Streamers are a good bet especially if you are looking to catch some of the bigger fish. Get out there when it is raining and the flows increase!
