DPC Month is Right Around the Corner!

It was great to see everyone come out of the woodwork yesterday after a week of pounding rains, floods and unseasonably cold weather!  It seemed like every lawn mower in Lamoille County was running yesterday.  I know mine was since it was a small window of opportunity between wet weather patterns to get some honey-do stuff done!  After today, we will have yet a couple more days of rains which could drop over an inch of water on an already saturated area.  Air temps are also supposed to jump up towards 90 by weeks end, so let's hope the trout window on the larger rivers doesn't close too quickly on us following all the rain.  Currently, the smallest tribs are just clearing in our area and many should be fishable by later today or tomorrow.  Things may clear up, but will still be running high and fast, so big streamers are a good choice until things settle a bit.  Portions of Lake Champlain and some of our other local stillwater fisheries are pretty choked up with debris, so use caution out there and go easy on the throttle!
