Farmington fly fishing Memorial Day Weekend 6/1/11

Nice trout Stan!

This Memorial Weekend was a stellar weekend for fishing the Farmington River.  The weather stayed good and offered some nice, warm, sunny conditions to fish.  There were lots of Caddis pouring off the river from noontime into the late evening.  Fish on quick water riffles fed on the smorgasbord of Caddis emergers ans the still water fish preferred the adult patterns.  I saw many large fish taken this weekend as the trout consistently fed on the many types of Caddis making their appearance on the Farmington River.  At times fish needed to be hunted down as most fish let Caddis roll over them one after another  and  at other times some fishermen were just in the right place at the right time as large concentrations of insects emerged from the depths.  Fishing nymphs this weekend was especially rewarding for me and many others that I talked with along the river.  Many Caddis patterns such as czech Caddis, Lafontaine Caddis patterns,and many others were good performers in #14-16.  My Kahle worms also caught fish for me all weekend used as my anchor fly.  Finally we have spotted some #16 Sulphurs in the upper TMA and a few fish were caught earlier in the week on the Sulphur emergers.

A well colored Farmington River meat eater!

Thanks Mike S. for the great picture.
