We are currently winding down a long period of snowmelt here in the White Mountains. With flows at fishable levels we hit the water today for a short float. Guide Mason Thagouras got on the board with this fine female brown. Water temps today struggled to break 41 degrees, making for slow fishing. Luckily things look to change over the next few days. With residual snowmelt and rain showers keeping flows at fishable levels and warmer weather bumping water temps, the bite should be solid for the next ten days.
The southern lakes region has been fishing well for a couple of weeks now for salmon and rainbow trout. The northern lakes region has been flirting with a good salmon bite for about a week now and it looks like this warmer weather will have the salmon and rainbows chomping at the bit. We have some water where you can catch salmon, rainbows, browns and smallmouth bass all in the same day. We guided our client Jon Habif on this water last week and he managed 3 out of four catching all salmonoid species. This fishing will be prime next week. We have dates open.
Wild brook trout waters should be turning on any day now. Lower gradient and slower waters will turn on first with caddis and mayfly hatches starting very soon.
The Androscoggin river is running at fishable flows in the north country and getting close below Berlin. The andro will be fishing soon. We will keep you posted on that!
