Just a few weeks left on most waters, except a few of the larger western Maine rivers. Water temps are in the low, 50’s, which is hard to believe with all the warm days. I fished and guided two different rivers this weekend, and found the fish to be willing, though a little sluggish. Water levels are lower than normal, for this time of year for sure. Nymphs and streamers rule in the fall, but be ready for the dry bite if it happens. Also, don’t be afraid to add wet fly behind your streamer, or in front of your nymph, to up your odds. There are still some October caddis around, and swinging a wet can be deadly.
