housy bow sept 24

On the plus side, the Housatonic River Trout Management Area is running a little below 200 cubic feet per second, which means the wading angler can get to a lot of spots normally accessible only by boat.

But the low flows, combined with the unusually warm and sunny weather, mean the water temperature is getting into the 70s by mid-day.

So while it’s a lot of fun to go out and catch the feisty rainbows the state stocked a couple weeks back, they take a fair bit of reviving, as I found out on Sunday, Sept. 24.

It might be best to give the trout a rest until this hot spell breaks.
