Farmington River, Connecticut - Fishing Report -
March 22, 2017
The discharges and stream levels are down low again and that's an
advantage at this time of the season. The coming week is going to be mostly
warm with rain beginning tomorrow, so the low level situation is likely to
change. The water is still cold and Midges are still important.
7 Day Weather Forecast: There is a chance of rain from Friday through next
Tuesday, otherwise clear. Highs will range from 37 to 54 degrees and lows
from 12 to 32 degrees.
Recommended Trout Flies:
Blue-winged Olives: size 18 and 20, nymph, emergers, duns and spinners
Black Matuka and Olive Matuka Sculpin, size 4/6/8
Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin, size 6
Winter Stoneflies, size 16 and 18, nymphs and adults
Black Flies, size 18/20, larva, pupa and adults
Midges: Blood (Red), sizes 20/22 larva, pupa and adults
Midges: Cream, size 20/22, larva, pupa and adults
Midges: Light Green, size 20/22, larva, pupa and adults
Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin are two of the best flies to use for the next few
months. The Black Matuka and Olive Matuka sculpins are good flies to use at this time
of the season.
Various species of Blue-winged Olives and midges are plentiful. Blue-winged olives can
hatch on cloudy, overcast days.
Winter stoneflies will start hatching any time now.
Black Flies are hatching.
Midges are hatching, creams, reds or blood, and light green.
