Fishing Report- Battenkill, 4/14/2015
The water is certainly running high and moving fairly fast. I checked out the section that flows under Richville Road and thought better of fishing it. I only had the fly rod, and the water was so high up the bank I didn’t feel comfortable trying. One slip and I would be in over my head in water that is none too warm. I fished for about an hour by Union Street where conditions were slightly improved, with stained water. I didn’t have any action, and didn’t see any insect activity of note. I think it’s definitely too early for hatches, but anything fished deep should produce. The trouble at the moment is finding the fish; with so much water, it’s easy to misinterpret where the likely holding spots are.
