River Report / Conditions – June 7, 2020

June 3, 2020, Author: Patrick Cook

As of late, the most productive fishing has come in the evenings, as to be expected this time of year. The Sulphur hatch is in full swing, with March Browns, Grey Foxes, BWOs, and several species of caddis mixed in. Feeding soft hackles and caddis emergers to aggressive fish has been very effective. Green Drakes are being spotted in the afternoons, and Coffins are appearing in the evenings or after dark. The Lower East and portions of the Main are registering mid day temps near 70 degrees, so have a stream thermometer handy, and plan accordingly.

The fly shop is now open for curbside pick-up and limited foot traffic. We are looking forward to seeing you all and hearing how your season has gone thus far.

Feel free to call the shop with any questions about products, current conditions, or guided trips which resumed on 5/15.
