08/20/10 – warm water

08/20/10 – Well the longer, cooler nights are working lower water temperatures and this morning I got a reading of 70 degrees in back of the shop. I checked it twice and use a different thermometer for each reading. That’s a good thing. My experience here in the Shawmut/Fairfield section of the river tells me […]

07/16/10 – Light Cahills

07/16/10 – Well things have cooled slightly. Enough so that the bugs have started hatching again but the water is still hot. The water temperature out back of the shop is 72 degrees – way warmer than I’d like. But like I said the bugs are back and that’s got to be a good sign. […]

07/02/10 – warm water – Hex

07/02/10 – Well the river got a straight through flush of water this week and it’s just now getting back to “almost wadable” levels. This whole week has had high flows and Shawmut today is just below 8,000CFS. A flow you can wade but it’s hard work – not to mention dangerous. Great for boats […]

06/18/10 – It just doesn’t get any better than this. Great levels, great temps (water was 65 degrees last night at 9:30pm¬†and is 61 degrees this morning) and there are lots of bugs hatching. The flipping picture on the left will show you the size of two of the mayflies we’re seeing right now. For […]

06/11/10 – fishing good

06/11/10 – Life is good. The bugs are hatching, levels are almost back down to normal and there are only showers in the forecast. That’s all they forecast for last week was showers and instead we got pounding rain but perhaps this week they’ll get it right. If they do it should be a bit […]
