Farmington River Series Nov. 2009

     November was a great month on the River with lots of big fish aggressively moving about as the spawn is on!  I had a great month fishing on the bottom with nymphs.  Some of my better producers were Isonychia nymphs in size 12-14, and the San Jaun worm tied on a #12 caddis hook weighted with wire. 

     There was a consistent hatches of Blue Winged Olives in smaller sizes #22-24.  The bigger fish have been sitting  in slack or slow rolling water and refusing a vast majority of dryflies, and eagerly take the emerging insects one right after the other. I had great success fishing tiny BWO wets as droppers, off a CDC parachute Blue Winged Olive.  This method addresses the problem with bigger fish seemingly feeding stricktly on emergers.
