Housatonic 4/21 - Cornwall Bridge

Hendricksons! With water temperature in the mid 50s, nymph activity has been pretty hot over the past week and a few duns are starting to appear. I arrived around mid day (after getting cold and skunked down at Devon PP ). It was a lot warmer up stream - especialy wading. River levels are high but clarity is great and as the water levels drop each day the fishing can only improve.

I didn't hook up - tried at my favorite low water spots but this is a different place when levels are high. Guys who realy know the river are getting 4 to 5 fish a day and they're all hold-overs. No fish are stocked here before mid May. I tried further upstream and found a few fish rising and a couple of them were large. I couldn't see if they were after the Hendrickson duns or black stoneflies which were also active on the water. I couldn't buy a strike but it was great to throw a dry fly under clear blue skies. Provided we don't get too much rain tommorow, things should be in great shape for this coming week end.
When sight fishing, look over your shoulder from time to time, you never know who's behind you
