Tribs or Bass

From Camp to Coast - One of our GMFFC campers proudly displays his first fly caught Striped Bass from a recent ME trip
It's a bit of a cooler rainy day out there today and the showers came down steadily all night long at my house in Hyde Park.  The Lamoille is still cranking at a pretty decent rate, but flows have cleared up considerably over the past few days.  Todays rains have the gauge at a plateau right now, so we'll have to see how much things come up if any.  Bass should still be the focus for Lamoille fishing, since the trout still need cooler water.  Finding cold water confluences on a river where trout are struggling to stay alive is unethical at best and should be avoided.  Thermally stressed trout that are "herding" at coldwater confluences are trying to stay alive and are not there for your recreational pleasure, so move on.  Please check temps of any trout water prior to wetting a line.  The tribs have come up a bit, but look decent for the most part today.  Some streams were actually getting a bit low, so last night's showers will freshen things up a bit.

The bass fishing has been great and our local bass pro Matt Applebaum has been putting his guests of all ages on plenty of fish!  Trips with Matt are aboard a fully rigged, 21' Nitro Bass Boat designed for 1 thing only....bassin' in style!  Fish like a pro with the pro's!
