Natchaug River Action

The Blue Quills/Mahogany Duns and Hendricksons, both duns and spinners at dusk are present on the Natchaug providing some opportunities for fishing to risers.  With the water clarity and current levels, sight fishing to trout holding down in the water column will usually bring them to the surface.

If all else fails, float an emerger, then swing and sink it under just in front of the target.  many times you will get a chase and a take when insects are hatching but not on the water in quantity.

             

Not much caddis activity but noticed a few yellow sallies, a stonefly, around just recently.
