Default Chubs


New to the forum and pretty new to the sport of fly fishing; this is my second season and I'm loving it! I live in southern New Hampshire and fish the Piscataquog and the Souhegan pretty frequently because it's closer, however all I've been catching is chub after chub after chub. I caught 15 in one day on a EHC in the Souhegan in two different spots. However, there hasn't been much trout. My buddy I was fishing with caught the one brookie of the day. Am I catching chubs because the water's too warm? Am I fishing the wrong spots?

Warmer water is more suitable for chub therefore they will grow more. The souhegan river has very limited summer trout habitat, so trout will be few and far between. With trout being gone the river chub take their spot in the food chain.

HiYa Keegs! I'm not a pro but I would try some bead heads in smaller cooler streams. I can only speak about my experience but it's always slow this time of year. Another month it will pick up.
P.S. A chub is better than no fish at all.
