Hi all,

Looking for info if Salmon river is still fly fishing well ??

Any tips on flies and sizes will be appriciated.

Local stuff I normally do Willimantic & Natchaug getting very low water levels and possibly fished out or close. Or my skill level stinks . ( most likely the later ) .

Also I met a guy named Charlie at the Salmon river Friday night 6/8, If any of you know him ( or Charlie is reading this ) I would like to get in touch with Him. He fishes with his son and I met him at the last pool downstream where the FLY fish only TMA runs out . Pool above the waterfall.

Unless we get a Nor Easter, the Salmon will be too low to fish & the water temps too warm. Best bet would be to fish the Farmington/Housatonic......If you prefer dries, tie on an Ant / Beetle pattern..other than that Pheasant Tail nymphs always work.

Just prior to the last heat wave there were still fish to be caught in the Fly area, mainly in the deeper pools. But the water was getting dangerously low and very warm.We need several days of rain if the fish are to survive.
