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. 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.

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 …

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 …

Abnormally awesome weather weekend in the north country didn’t materialize in to many trout for the Green Mountain Project Healing Waters veterans that we hosted. This brown trout was the exception – 20″ and very healthy and swimming the depths again today.
