Or at least it seemed that way.
With temps still in the 80’s, I decided to give the trout a break and focus on Housatonic smallies with streamers. I was not disappointed.
The bite was on from the minute I arrived. Often they were hitting the streamer as soon as it touched the water, acting like it was a dry fly. This continued for 2 hours, and I stopped counting at 30 fish.
Bonuses on this trip:
- Had the water to myself
- Only lost 2 streamers to breakoffs
- Did not fall in
Why not give the green trout a try.
