Finally, spring has sprung in the north country. With several days in the mid 70’s trees are showing leaf production, fiddleheads are popping and our waters are warming. Flows have been coming down in the Allagash, Aroostook, and Mooseleuk. All are full of fish and wadeable.
Its been all about sinking lines and streamers. Grey ghosts and various soft hackles have been working the best with most takes at the the end of the swing. Typical spring streamer fishing. Blue Wing Olives and Hendricksons are beginning to show so fish are just now beginning to look up. All you need is a similar dry and a drag free drift and its game on. Remember a quote from a legendary Maine Guide: A good drift is way better than a good cast… meaning a drag-free drift is essential in fooling a fish during mayfly hatches.
Think Northern Maine Fly Fishing and Chandler Lake Camps and lodge.
