I would have to concur. Spent the afternoon working the lower portions of Tremont, mainly along the gravel road. The water was moving fast but running clear. Saw some sz 18-16 early brown stones, a few dun caddis(18) and a few quills at sz. 14. No risers to take the adult flys though. Worked a heavily weighted BHPT with split shot 3-4' under a yarn indicator and managed two bows that were 8-9" in length but fat & healthy none-the-less. Met "Trouttater" from this board and some of his friends. Super nice guy and one heck of a tyer! We traded some flies and shared a few tails. These gentlemen were having a tough go of it as well today. A few other flyfishers I spoke with were smelling skunk too. Beautiful day to get out despite the blustery conditions! Hope someone here had alittle better luck! Things can only get better from here!
