Finally, the temperatures dropped today in New Hampshire’s north country, and it began to feel like fall. Anytime is a good time to be on the water, but there’s something special about wetting a fly in the autumn.

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.┬áIn 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.

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 …

How’s the fishing? The Connecticut River has been a bit of an enigma lately for some of our guests – water flows are stable (85 CFS at Second Lake Dam, 154 CFS at First Lake Dam, and 300 CFS at Murphy Dam), but there’s been a lot of anglers on the river (all sections, but especially the Trophy Stretch), so our belief is that the fish are hunkered down, biding their time.
