My tips of the week
Spawning season is over. As water temperature falls to near freezing many fish exit the river. Fish that remain in the river for the winter eek out a living picking at the huge nymphs population. With the exception of stoneflies use small whatever. There probably won't be one particular bug they are after. That only happens during hatch season.

The river is in winter mode. There will be no other changes until spring. Weather is the issue now. Water temperature will only be a couple degrees about freezing so a fall can turn deadly. It's best that you don't go alone and never wade over your knees and cleats are a must. The Maine Guide Fly Shop is now closed for the season.
