Cool Down Coming

A recent GMT client fishing a Lamoille tributary
We've had a few scorcher days here in the north country, but that's about to come to an end starting tonight as lows in the 50's lead into highs in the low 70's tomorrow and Friday. Our next shot of rain comes in with a warm front this weekend, and boy do we need some water in the system as things are pretty stale around here. The bigger rivers are certainly pushing up and over 70 degrees, so give'em a break until it cools down again. 
The warm temps this week brought out a sporadic emergence of flying ants which can cause our local trout to act drunk and disorderly. You should definitely have some flying ant patterns in your box and we have some here at the shop fresh off the vice!
On recent outings, we've seen some trico hatches in select areas and we've had success throwing ant patterns, green-bodied copper johns and buggers primarily. Hoppers are also a good option in this hot, bright weather. 
We've listed our dates for the 2015 Green Mountain Fly Fishing Camp sessions, so please click to see which session(s) work out for your child next season! 
Also please note that the 2015 Ditch Pickle Classic will be on 6/27 - 6/28, so reserve your spot by sending us your team names to ditchpickleclassic@gmail.com
