Stan and I went on a scouting expedition to see how the Sugar and Contoocook Rivers were fishing. The low rainfall so far this spring has the rivers at great fishable levels. We found more stoneflies buzzing around than we could believe. The Contoocook had so many stone flies that it looked almost like a major caddis hatch. On the Sugar R. w e caught brookies and browns in a deep, clear pool that you can see here. When I get another free minute, I'll give you the "story behind the story."
