until next time

Hi Folks, Took two spin anglers fishing on the Lamoille yesterday morning.  We were on the water at 5:30am.  Pretty darn warm out there and the Lamoille is now too warm to trout fish.  The water temperature at 6:00am was 69 degrees and by time we finished up, the temp. had reached 70 degrees.  Hot summer days will do that.  Give the thermally stressed trout in the bigger rivers a break and move to small streams for trout fishing now.  We fished big primary pools had some good success with the stocked rainbows of the Lamoille.  We landed one 13" wild bow, but every other fish was a hatchery product.  We cast a rapala brown trout imitation and a rebel crawfish.  There were crawfish all over the river bottom.  Pretty interesting to see the number of follows from fish.  Most of the strikes are usually on a pretty good wallop on the plugs.  We landed 8 fish and missed a few others.  Looks warm over the next few days so getting on the water early will be good.  Off to chase walleye and bass this morning.  Remember to clean your gear and keep the non-native species at home.  Have Fun, Willy
