Water a Little High, but Fishing Still Good in the Dartmouth / Sunapee Region

The Connecticut River is running a little higher than normal from recent rains, but trout and smallmouth are being caught from the driftboat.

Local lakes and ponds have seen surface activity in the early morning and late evenings. Trout are taking Green Drakes, White Wulffs and some Hexagenia. During the heat of the day nymphing can still produce a few fish.

Rainbows, Browns and Brookies have been caught (and released) below the Mascoma Lake dam on Pearly Hare's Ear nymphs. The upper river, above the lake, also has produced a few trout and smallmouth.

The Sugar River is running high after recent thunderstorms, so wolly buggers and nymphs would be a wise choice.
