Mother Nature has been pretty kind to our rivers over the past two weeks. While most river are still above average for this time of year, they are very fishable. Clarity is improving on big rivers and temps have been very comfortable for fish and angler.
There is a good chance of precipitation tomorrow. Generally a quarter inch in most areas. Then we have a beautiful stretch of weather leading us into Labor Day weekend. After the weekend, summer returns for a short time mid week with high temps in the mid 80s and minimal chances of rain.
If you live in Vermont or have been following these posts, then you know that we have had a rough go of it over the last two months with flooding rains. As we have been getting windows of opportunity to get back on water in these areas, we are finding that the trout have not only survived but are thriving. Very heathy looking fish, and still a bunch of trout that were stocked in the spring.
September brings the promise of species that spawn out of Lake Champlain and other inland lakes. Landlocked salmon, brown trout and steelhead. Stay tuned to river reports for our first signs.
