I spent a couple of hours fishing the Farmington River Monday, arriving late in the morning to find that I had a nice stretch of river to myself. I saw that there were some caddis sporadically coming off the water and it appeared that the fish were taking them as they emerged. I began nymphing using a small BHPT in the faster water at the head of this stretch and immediately had a nice rainbow. I had steady action for about the next 2 hours,landing a good mix of browns, bows and one decent brookie, which completed the hat trick.
I also had to contend with the wind, which at times was blowing like a hurricane and I could see whitecaps on the river!!
