Hi Folks, Guided my last trip of the 2015 trout/bass season yesterday afternoon. Halloween is the last day of the Vermont trout season for large percentage of our inland trout waters. Still some waters to fish but it can become pretty challenging with the quickly cooling water temperatures. The river we fished yesterday was pretty slow. Water temperature was 41 degrees and the water was high and clear. There was a hatch of #22 midge that came off pretty well, but I did not see any fish respond to the tiny bug. We swung streamers without any response. I can't say I was surprised with the results after reading the water temperature.
I would like to thank everyone who hired me this past season as it was my busiest season to date in 21 years of guiding Vermont waters. I will be working on newsletter for my website and Facebook that will be a year end summary of the past season. I am off to do a little hunting and prepare to for ice fishing season. Remember to clean your gear and keep the non-native species at home. Have Fun, Willy
