Well it has been a while since I updated the fishing report. This is not due to a lack of fishing or guiding, but due to an overly active schedule. Having a new born baby in the house has taken up all of the brief spare moments I have. Anyways, off the water today due to a rain delay.
The fishing has been hot and cold on the Andro over the past few weeks with warm temps making for slow fishing at times and hatches spurring epic fishing at other times. It seems things have become more consistent over the past few days and it looks like this rain and cool weather will make for a great rest of June on the Andro.
Green caddis have been the most consistent bug on the Andro as of late, but mayflies and stones have also had their moments of great importance early and late in the day for mayflies and late in the day for stones. I've done well guiding with my trusty large prince nymph stonefly jigs size 6-8nd PT nymph jigs size 12. My custom parachute purple haze dries have worked on the surface, as have elk hair caddis. Streamers have worked decently well when low pressure systems are incomming. Looks like good streamer fishing today and tomorrow.
The Saco has fished decently well from what I have gathered from local reports. I've honestly not fished the Saco the last week as float trips have been the agenda and the Saco is running low. This cold rain should get the browns on the move for streamers.
The Ellis river and other mountain streams should fish well from here on out. Reports of wild brookies turning on have me excited for wade fishing trips in the comming weeks.
No time for me to post pics right now but check out our recent adventures on Instagram @natefish83.
