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.

Thank you Mariah for that great picture.

Connecticut River flows in all sections of the river have remained stable all this past week, ensuring good angling for most of our guests. The cold water in the Trophy Stretch and especially below Murphy Dam have helped our local trout and salmon stay in a “feeding” frame of mind, like that nice one pictured above, caught and released by Griffin Nyhan.
