The Flying Ant hatch has begun! I have not seen the bigger one that looks like a termite but the little brown ones have the Trout rising very well....I am still in morning mode running half day trips 7 to 11am...the southern Vermont trout fisheries seem to be faring the low water period fairly well....I have NOT seen or heard of any major fish kills....a little rain would be nice but after TS Irene kicked our a$$es last year I am afraid to do any rain dances this year....Thanks for the visit, Fall is coming....Woodcock season is set to open October 1st...please stay tuned

Battenkill Fly Fishing

Here in southern Vermont we have like most people been dealing with low water conditions. However, throughout the summer the Battenkill continues to be the place to be. Both Brook and Brown Trout are feeding on tan caddis in sizes 16 and 18, trico spinners, isonychia (Kashner ZugBugs), Black Ants, Beetles, Battenkill Shiners and Black Nose Dace Thunder Creeks...
