We got the first frost of the year in Stowe last night. About time… The anglers hitting the rivers this morning had very little success. Probably a bit challenging out there with the cold temps. It was still in the low 40’s at 9 when I opened up this morning. Things should be starting to pick up as the day progresses. I wouldn’t be surprised to see some Isos hatching tonight along with big orange October Caddis flies. Really not a whole lot else to report. Weather forecast hasn’t changed much, some rain on Tuesday and Wednesday, other than that it’s going to be dry over the next week-10 days. The Salmon fishing has been a bit challenging with the low flows, there are fish around but due to the lack of water locating fish can be tough. The Clyde right now is at 81cfs which will be tough but doable. As far as the run in NY goes, the salmon have been running up the river but the “run” has yet to happen. The water is at 350cfs and running right around 60 degrees, there are plenty of fish being sighted in the estuary, seems like they’re just waiting for a little push of water! Good luck to everyone getting out there and be sure to let us know how you do!
