I fished the Androscoggin last Saturday. It was cold and windy and the hydroelectric company raised the flows the previous night. The conditions were hardly ideal. Still, I had to get out and fish up north before the end of the season.
It wasn’t a high volume day by any means. We all fished hard, fishing pheasant tails, caddis nymphs, midges, san juan worms, eggs, and even streamers. However, between three of us, Matt landed the only fish, a nice wild rainbow on an egg. It fought hard and I almost muffed the landing.
After landing Matt’s fish, the cold got to us and we went back to my car. Despite the unfavorable conditions and low success, it was fun to go north again. Honestly, I didn’t expect to catch anything (or see a caught fish) due to the low water temps. Still, any trip to the White Mountains is fun. The snow capped mountains were quite a sight!
Update: I did well yesterday. The post is right here.
