First float of 2013

Floated the Upper Andro with my client Jim on Friday; started off cool and cloudy, then got sunny with a strong tailwind. The water is very low (1,500 cfs in Gorham, NH), and 52 degrees. We found some brookies that were eager to bite, as well as a nice holdover rainbow. Netted 7 fish on a 7 hour float, with many hit and spits, and things should only get better in the coming weeks. We saw plenty of caddis and mayflies, but not surface action….yet.

After Jim and I pulled out, I headed back up stream with my buddy Sean to do a short float. We boated another 5 fish, including a few nice brookies up to 14″. Saw a few surfaces, but couldn’t get any to rise to a fly.

I expect things to really heat up in June so book now! Here area few picsĀ  to wet your appetite….
