Following the weekend rain and cooler temps, the Natchaug has regained normal flows. We expect the conditions to hold for this week, hopefully into next week and the start of summer! Monday showed tea stained water but much better levels. Current water levels. (Good wading and flows at these levels.) Emergers continue to take trout. Our guests a week ago took several nice fish on a combination of emergers and soft hackles fished just under the surface as evening approached. Today at the 6:00 o'clock hour, caddis, sulphur spinners and BWO's provided a compound hatch. This was the most prolific sulphur spinner activity we've seen so far, but they were in egg laying mode and did not fall as of 8:20 PM. As has been the case most of the season, rising trout were few and far between; the off color water no doubt the issue. We expect the next few days to be good; the larger runs and pools are still holding very nice fish and the increased flow has certainly extended what was looking like an early end to spring fishing.
"Evenings on the Natchaug" look good for the next week and hopefully beyond...TEAM 7x has dates available...AND space is available for the June 18 fly fishing intro at Charlie Brown Campground.
