This morning, the Farmington River was 72 degrees up in Riverton. Normally, this is the coldest part of the river as it is right below the dam. It is currently a bad idea to catch and release trout in the Farmington or any of the river in the state. When water temperatures rise above 68 degrees, it stresses trout out. Although you may catch one and it may swim away, the fish will surely die. It's the same as when trout are mishandled. Many Anglers believe that because the fish robustly swims away, that he is fine. This is not true. Mishandling trout is one of the main causes of death. Catching them in temperatures above 68 degrees and releasing them is no different. Please leave the fish alone until the temperatures go back down.

I came across a fly rod and reel today on the Farmington River. Luckily, it is still intact. If you can identify it, it's yours.

While I was rigging up my fishing rods a few mornings ago in preparation for some clients, the bear decided to come and hang out with me for a while.

I took 11 year old Alice and her dad fishing today on the Farmington River. The fishing was somewhat difficult due to the wind and the water being a little high. Alice had a few fish eat her flies but missed the hookset. She was an amazingly patient and polite young lady who was very focused for the entire 8 plus hours that we fished. Her diligence paid off as she landed this beautiful brown trout just as we were about to leave. There is something very special about a youngster and their first trout on the fly. Congratulations Alice !!

Got a shot of these two bald eagles on the Farmington River this morning on my way to meet a client. Wind was ripping up there. Despite that, my client had a great afternoon with the Hendrickson hatch. He landed a slob of a brown using 6x tippet and refused to be photographed.
