I went to a Connecticut River tributary today that I recently spotted a few big trout in that I believe to be Fall Run sea trout. The stream warms up dramatically during the summer and there are no stocked fish in the system, so the must have come in from the salt. The water was down from what it had been, and despite my best efforts swinging heavy wet flies I was not able to move any salmonids. To salvage the day I went after bluegills again.
I went to the same pond in Essex, and tied on the same rig that worked yesterday. I was worried the rain and clouds had put the fish off the feel, but I had at least two hours before the action shut down entirely.
