What is the Best Hatch in New England
Thought this could start a good conversation. I would be split between early season Quill Gordon's and Sulfers. BWO are always the go to but they are so often I think they get watered down.

Green Drake, in Aroostook County when the big brookies are gorging themselves with recless abandon. Mid June to Mid july depending on flows and temps.

Definitely the Black Quills on the Nissitissit. I've never seen a bigger hatch anywhere in the state!

White Fly on the Housy. Can be an absolutely insaaaaaane hatch.

Or it could be the green heads on PI :D

I know that this answer isn't what your looking for Nate but i've thought about this question for a couple of days and keep coming back to my initial thoughts on the subject. For me the best hatch is the surprise one that occurrs while I'm fishing, and don't expect there to be a hatch.

I'll second the Miller's white fly hatch on the Housatonic, or anywhere that it happens for that matter. There's so much meat on the water that I've caught small catfish on this hatch in warmer waters. It seems that most fish just lose control when this one is on.
