We got a little shot of rain recently but since then it has been windy and cold. Most fisherman are catching fish in all the area rivers and inlets. I have heard good reports from the Rapid and the upper Magalloway. I took some sports to the lower Magalloway today and was suprised to find the flow at 300 cfs. They caught a few fish on nymphs and the water temp was a perfect 58 degrees. I spent last week on the Kennebago with sports and all caught salmon and more brookies than I am used to seeing in the upper pools. The best fly on the Kennebago for my fisherman was a tan hornberg fished subsurface. Standard nymphs like prince, pheasant tail and copper john also caught fish. For streamers, anything with alot of white marabou should be your first choice. Other streamers to try would be the Picket Pin, Woods Special, Little Brook Trout and any color Woolly Bugger. Small soft hackle emergers catch alot of fish this time of year fished just below the surface and can be used as a dropper behind a streamer or dry. The area small ponds should fish well in this final week of the season as the temps drop with the colder weather on the way. Don’t forget that many of these ponds are open thru October. Feel free to call the shop if you have any questions.
