A foggy start

We continue to have warm weather here in New England which means that some days start out pretty foggy and that was the case this morning.  I had wanted to fish a small stream but things have been very dry so plan B was to get up early and fish the Farmington again.  Wow what a difference a week can make in the water levels.  This morning I was standing on dry river bed where I was catching fish a week ago.


Later in the morning I met up with Alan, Kirk , and Pete.  We had to work for fish today but with persistence a frenchie/zebra midge combination brought some browns and a nice rainbow to the net. Not bad for a December!

  1. It was good to meet everyone today and have a short reunion of sorts. Yes had to work hard for a fish today but was worth it! Good to see most of the "crew"! Nice job on the browns and bow!!

    You got my attention when you mentioned the Farmington; healthy looking rainbow and brown trout. Do any of these trout spawn in the Farmington? Glad you guys had success; thanks for sharing

    1. Bill, thanks. The browns spawn in the river and its not usual to catch a wild brown. There might be some wild bows in the river but definitely not nearly as many.

  5. Good looking fish! That brown is especially beautiful but you know how I am partial to brown trout. Glad you are still enjoying some good fishing late in the season!

  6. Well done, Mark, with the beautiful trout. This fall has been something else as far as extending the fly fishing season.
