Headed up to the Farmington last night, probably not the best call with thundershowers in the forecast. About 30 minutes before I reached the section I had planned to fish the skies opened up and down it came. At one point, I pulled into a office complex to sit out some heavy downpours and watched the water coming out of the downspout like someone had opened a fire hydrant!
A cold fog hanging over the river
The river where I had planned to fish was muddy with limited clarity so I opted to head up river above some of the major tributaries to see if things would be clearer. It was a surreal experience with a cold fog hanging over the river with warm humid air just above. There was limited visibility in the fog but I did manage to catch a couple of brookies and a brown. It's rare that catch brook trout on the Farmington and this was the first time I've caught more than one. I don't know if they were wild but they were on the smallish side which makes me think that I was in a section of the river that might have some wild fish.
