cooling down

Hi folks, guided the Lamoille yesterday under bright blue skies with a steady north wind.  A little chilly out there and the water temperature was 51 degrees.  Flows are still a bit high and I do see that changing for the rest of the season.  We moved around to find rising fish and never saw any surface activity.  Pretty decent number of hatching #20 BWOs, but no trout responding to the surface.  Also saw a good number of #14 olive bodied egg laying caddis around dusk and no fish responding.  Lots of junk in the water yesterday, but that is typical of a fall day with wind and leaves.  We nymph fished several riffles and hooked 1 decent trout and missed two others.  Lots of casting for limited results.  Well I am going to do it all over again today.  Remember to clean your gear and keep the non-native species at home.  Have Fun, Willy
