Connecticut River (NH): Our drift boat trips continue to find some nice Smallmouth (15-20 fish a day). Fish have been rising to poppers, although nymphs and woolly buggers always produce. An occassional Rainbow can be found also.
Lakes and Ponds: Early morning and late evenings may produce a trout or two with sinking lines and nymphs or streamers.
Sugar River (NH): The river has dropped to summer levels, but trout are still being caught (and released) in the fly fishing only section.
White River (VT): Cooler nights have helped bring the water temps back down to fishable levels, but the trout are still holding deep mid-day. First light and last light are your best chances. Smallmouth are still being caught in the lower reaches of the river, and small brooks will continue to produce young trout throughout the summer.
Ottauquechee River (VT): Flows are down to summer levels, but the water temp has come down a bit this week. Early morning and evening you might find some rising trout in deeper sections of the river.
Mascoma River (NH): Action is slow according to reports from customers, but will pick up again if these cooler nights continue or we get some rain anytime soon.
