Rising Trout in February!

February was an interesting month to say the least.  The tri-state area has seen unseasonably warm temperatures as of late.  From about February 20th on the Anglers Den team witnessed rising trout on some of the areas local rivers. 

First we saw browns and bows sipping midges down in Brewster on the Croton watershed.  This early year gift was the result of consecutive days of warm weather and controlled flows let out of the areas local reservoirs.  The Den and fly fishermen alike seized the opportunity to shake off some rust and toss some dry flies considerably early in the year.

Later in the month some Anglers Den team members went around strategically collecting bug samples from other local rivers.  On a short drive to Amenia, located in Dutchess County NY, similar scenarios from our Brewster trip occurred.  We were examining the Ten Mile River one late afternoon to collect early season river data for shop purposes.  Upon arrival to some secluded spots, it was evident that the stone fly hatch was well underway.  Adult stone flies were sputtering around at a pretty decent rate, and more importantly the fish were taking them when available.  We noticed that downed trees provided the perfect barrier from the current as trout would hold up just down stream from the fallen timber, eating ever so often.  
East Branch of the Croton River Watershed: Open
West Branch of the Croton River: April 1st
Ten Mile River: Trout open April 1st
