I know that sounds like an oxymoron, and don’t worry, I’m a guide, so I can say that. The guide I speak of is Chuck Degray of North Country Fly Shop & Guide Service, and he has been plying the upper Connecticut River in search of trout and salmon for his clients this week. In short, things are picking up on the fishing front – get up here, as our season is now only a little over three weeks away from concluding.

We often hear guests and fishermen ask how the fishing is and what is working, and my first question right back at them is well, how do you like to fish?

It’s changing around here … you can just feel it. That transition from summertime to fall is happening here in northern New Hampshire, and that means fall fishing on the Connecticut River. Perhaps the most beautiful part of the year, and a great time to cast on the river for colorful brookies and browns, and don’t forget about our acrobatic rainbows and salmon too. It’s here.

It’s finally here everybody … the first solar eclipse since 1979, and people are excited about it. It will happen somewhere around 1:30 PM today and it looks like our weather will cooperate. Sunny, clear sky today, and while we won’t have full totality, it should be cool nonetheless …

Summer on the Connecticut River’s “Trophy Stretch” – some cool mornings lately, but it always seems to end up around 70 – 75 degrees by the afternoon anyway. Pretty much perfect, and just enough coolness to keep September in the back of your mind.

The fishing season plods along here on the upper Connecticut River in northern New Hampshire. The weather in July was a general improvement, compared to what we endured in June, and it has felt downright “fall-like” lately. Temps in the 40’s in the morning, warming to the 70’s during the day – perfect weather for enjoying sparkling days on the water …

It’s been a long time … sorry about that. Between not having much time to fish and a serious case of C.R.S. (Can’t Remember S%^!), I have been woefully neglectful of my reporting of what’s happening on the water, and for that I am truly repentant …

Finally, some good weather has filtered in to our region, and last night was perhaps the best of nights to be out on Back Lake. A warm, sunny day with little wind and generally perfect conditions for targeting rising fish … but would the trout be playing the game?

The Hexagenia hatch here at Back Lake continues on, despite the changing weather that we’ve had. As evidenced by the number of hexes on our boat house this morning, you’d think that it was quite a night last night. Think again …
