tough go of it

Hi Folks, spent a windy afternoon of the Lamoille with guests chasing trout yesterday.  Water level is still extremely low and the temperature was 64 degrees.  Should cool off a bit more this week and looks like we might get some rain.  Still the power company is not helping matters by holding back water behind their out dated dams.  Good breeze yesterday afternoon that blew junk onto the water.  Not much for hatching insects as we saw a few #20 BWOs, some sporadic #12 Isonychia, and a few #14 green bodied caddis hatching.  Saw two subtle rise forms all afternoon.  We caught one 11" wild rainbow that was pretty skinny and I would have to say took a beating during the last heat wave. The bow ate a #12 hare's ear parachute.   Missed a couple of other fish, but it was pretty tough day on the water.  Well, it can only get better.  I will be chasing trout this week and if the wind lets up I will be fsihing pike with the boat.  Remember to clean your gear and keep the non-native species at home.  have fun, Willy
