Archery Pond

Submitted - 2005-04-29
Archery Pond at Bearbrook State Park looks great after the work that was done during the off season. I fished the pond today for a couple of hours. The conditions were breezy and sometimes just plain windy. I saw one angler catch a trout on a "Shoe Felt." Wish I could tell you about all the fish I caught but, it would be a big "fish story."

I checked the Lamprey on my way back to the shop. 50 degree water and running high. If tomorrow's forecast holds true, I think the river should stay on the drop. I'd bet that Sunday and Monday our rivers will improve nicely.

Stonehouse has been fishing nicely. I got a report that a mayfly hatch came off at the beginning of this week and fish were caught on dry flies. As the week went on they were hitting the emergers.

That's it for now, Tom Jutras This report was provided by Mountain Road Fly Shop in Raymond, NH. Follow this link for more specific information on the reports or the area - http://mountainroadfly.com
