Damn. I’m in the middle of packing, and would ya’ believe it, the white fly hatch (Epheron Leukon) is happening on the Housatonic AS WE SPEAK according to the Housatonic River Outfitters + local CT blogger Passinthru the Outdoors. As the day cools off and the water, the big holdover trout should come out to play if you know where to look, otherwise, Housy’s legendary smallmouth bass will keep your rod bent. HRO has your patterns.
Maybe if I pack all night….
Take note though: Thermal Refuge areas (cold water sources such as tributary mouths and spring holes) are all closed off to fishing within 100 feet of the white signs until 9/1.
