River, Lake & Ponds Report
June 2022- Fishing has been excellent in all of the rivers here in the Adirondacks. We have had a reasonable amount of rain but fluctuating temperatures has us fishing early mornings at times. Now is a great time to book a guided day of fishing!
When water temperatures top 70 degrees it puts added stress on the trout and mortality rates increase dramatically…even if you handle the fish carefully. As the season progresses it is important to take readings with your stream thermometer and seek cooler water early or late in the day when the rivers warm up. Remember that water changes temperature more slowly than air does, so even if the air feels a bit cooler in the evening that doesn’t mean the rivers have had enough time to drop to suitable temperatures.
I am hosting a trip on the Delaware River September 15-18 for intermediate fly fishers. River’s edge cabin, great meals, fantastic fishing, good company. $550 all included. Space is limited. Give a call or email if interested.
