cold front

Hi Folks, Having a lot of fuh drifting my boat on the Lamoille the last few days.  Been mixing it up with smallmouth bass and trout.  A cold front has pushed into town dropping over night air temperatures into the high 40's.  Good for the trout water.  Bass fished yesterday and the fish were not as aggressive as a couple of days ago.  Totally different weather pattern.  Slow down the approach when cold fronts move in. Hot and humid always seems best for surface action.  We caught 7 smallies and missed another half a dozen.  All of our action was below the surface.  The water temperature was 70 degrees with a steady north/northwest wind.  Water levels are settleing down and are currently just above the seasonla average flow. for bugs, lots of #18-#20 micro caddis and now terrestrials.  I am off to run the drift boat this morning.  Remember to clean your gear and keep the non-native species at home.  Have Fun, Willy
