We have had a big change in our weather here this week. Cool days and nights have got it feeling like fall. This morning on the Kennebago it was 36 degrees and the water temps are in the mid 50's on all but the Magalloway. The next shot of rain that raises the water levels will move spawning fish up the rivers and streams. Levels in the freestone waters are very low right now but that is typical for this time of the summer. Midges and Blue winged olive mayflies are the only bugs around. The October caddis will be showing up soon. Soft hackle emergers like the Partridge and Orange are effective patterns in September for this large Caddis. The first fish up the river are usually pretty active and come well to Wooly Buggers and other streamers. Get ready! It's almost time.
