We had an inquiry from a guest recently if the “October Caddis” had made it’s appearance yet in our area, and there was seemingly nothing to report until Saturday night. That’s when this specimen decided to start answering my phone at the lodge, while I was deep in discussion of fishy matters with several guests at the front desk.

Chad's beautiful brook trout

If these are the “dog days of summer”, I wish we had many more of them, because the weather has been exceptional lately here in the north country of New Hampshire. That is one nice brook trout that our guest Chad Whitcomb caught and released on the Trophy Stretch last week – a beauty of a fish and don’t we wish that they were all that big! Thank you Mariah for that great picture.
