Fishy October

Since my last update, I have hit the water in quite a few places and have a couple more trips planned.  Fished the Pemi a couple times - once with a few salmon to show for it, and once with a couple salmon hooked and one nice rainbow landed - at Bristol and Franklin.  Also fished the Lamprey and Cocheco again, with a few average rainbows and browns and one really fat 17+ inch rainbow.  Also fished the Swift below the route 9 bridge and at the hatchery pipe.
Got a nice rainbow on a size 20 parachute Adams in the pool below the route 9 bridge and a whole bunch of rainbows and one brown at the pipe - mostly on Shadan softhackles, but also on white sparkle egg clusters, caddis larva and one hit-and-quick-release on the parachute Adams.
I plan to hit the local rivers (Squannacook and Nissitissit) this afternoon and the Swift tomorrow with Stan.

Also, here is a video I recently put up on Youtube from an early October trip on the Androscoggin River and CT rivers.

  1. Addendum: I fished the Nissitissit and Squannacook Rivers this afternoon. Saw fish, but no interest from them at the Prescott St. bridge. Walked into the Bertozzi WMA in W. Groton and fooled a couple rainbows on a small Henryville Special. Air temp 71F and water 58F - truly beautiful day to be on the water.

  2. Gerry,

    I fished near Gilmans pool from 1:00 until 2:30 PM. Lot of surface action in difficult to reach spots. Caught a couple, lost one, left several flies in the trees.

  3. David,
    There were 3 cars parked at the gate, so I? turned around and went to the Squannacook. What did you get them on?

  4. Gerry,

    #20 Griffith's gnats. I never saw what the trout were actually rising to; actually, I never saw any insects on the water, but fish were coming to the surface so the gnat seemed as good a choice as anything.
